Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Susan Bullington Katz, in conversation with some of the top screenwriters working today, gives us an insider's look into the art, craft, and business of screenwriting - from the original screenplay to the adaptation of a literary work to documentary writing.

Conversations with Screenwriters features interviews with twenty-two award-winning screenwriters in all, from Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, writer of A Room with a View, to James L. Brooks and Mark Andrus, writers of As Good as It Gets, to Roberto Benigni, writer of Life Is Beautiful, to Anthony Minghella, writer of The English Patient and The Talented Mr. Ripley, and Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman, writers of Shakespeare in Love. These interviews address the challenges and difficulties that affect all writers, even those most successful at their craft.

Whether you are a professional or aspiring screenwriter, a director, or simply a film buff, Conversations with Screenwriters will inspire, teach, and engage you in the art of successful screenwriting.
