Readers who are fans of John Irving's, like I am, will most likely enjoy this memoir about how bizarre the movie industry is and all the obstacles that prevent a book from being made into a movie. It is well-written, if tedious at times, but overall rather fascinating in the details of how Irving transformed his substantial book The Cider House Rules into a less substantial screenplay.

Describes the angst a writer goes through when converting a book to a screenplay. FASCINATING!
