"Taking a look at movie versions of novels, the author contends that film is an art eminently capable of translating a novel, not only in plot and theme, but in style, technique, and effect. Providing a close-up study of the ways in which adaptation may serve as a successful, even superlative, interpretation of literature, this book examine aesthetics, the history, and the contemporary results of moviemakers; use of fiction in film. Here is an eye-opening scrutiny of contemporary films that fail, succeed or even transcend their literary source when two parallel art forms join forces at the movies." from the jacket flap.
