HOLLYWOOD'S STEPHEN KING. NY: MacMillan/Palgrave, 2003. First Edition. 5 X 8. Trade Paperback. As New / As New. ISBN: 0312293216. This description by Mr. Winter I think best sums up this book: "Novels are novels, and films are films -- and when the twain meet, it's a miracle. Tony Magistrale's informed commentary on Hollywood's scattershot (and often scatter-brained) approach to the fiction of Stephen King helps explain why classics like "Stand By Me" and "The Shawshank Recemption" can be found on the same shelf as "Children of the Corn III" and "The Mangler." A must-read for King's many fans, as well as screenwriters adn producers -- and for movie goers who wonder why so much can be lost in the translation from the page to the screen." -- Douglas E. Winter.
