Introduction by Greg Bear

Preface by Mark Cotta Vaz

The giant prehistoric gorilla King Kong is one of the most recognized images in our culture. So great is the mighty Kongs hold on the popular imagination that his story-a gripping yarn of man versus nature, coupled with a fantastical update of the Beauty and the Beast legend-has been thrice made into a motion picture (most recently in 2005) and referenced endlessly in every medium, from books to prime-time sitcoms.

Beneath King Kongs cultural significance, however, is a tense and surprisingly tender story. One cannot help but be frightened by Kongs uncontrollable fury, be saddened over the giants capture, mistreatment, and exploitation by venal showmen, or sympathize with the beasts ill-fated affection for the down-on-her-luck starlet Ann Darrow.

This Modern Library edition of a true colossus among adventure stories is reprinted from the original 1932 novelization of the movie script, and includes a Preface by Mark Cotta Vaz, the preeminent biographer of Merian C. Cooper, producer of the original 1933 classic film.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

The officially commissioned 1933 book version of the cinematic classic is available just in time for the all-new Universal Pictures remake, set for release on December 14 and directed by Oscar(-winning director Peter Jackson ("The Lord of the Rings*" trilogy).
