A New York Times Notable Book. In this memoir, novelist John Irving's recounts the process of turning his novel The Cider House Rules into a workable screenplay. After two producers, four directors, thirteen years, and countless rewrites, the movie version of Irving's acclaimed novel at last made it to the big screen (winning an Academy Award to John Irving for Best Adapted Screenplay).

"Insightful…Recommended…Humorously exploring the differences between writing novels and screenplays, Irving contemplates the movie world from the perspective of a fiction author."–Library Journal

"This short, amiable book is John Irving’s personal history of seeing–or not seeing–his novels made into movies....Irving remains coolly objective, and it is clear why he is a novelist, first and foremost, and his attitude toward the movie business is informed by this security and certainty....Irving has done us [writers] proud.”– The New York Times Book Review
