Robin Swicord, writer/director, Wakefield, screenwriter, Matilda, Little Women, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:
"Krasilovsky's book provides a motherlode of broad-ranging insights into the art of adaptation, illuminating an essential truth about the sea of stories in which we all swim. It's a book every screenwriter should read."
Jule Selbo, screenwriter and author of Screenplay: Building Story through Character:
"...brilliant, inspirational... Krasilovsky explores global influences that have shaped the 'male' story and the 'female' story, emphasizes, the importance of setting, time and place and includes a multitude of supporting examples. This book must be included in every academic study on Adaptation and is a 'must have' in every screenwriter's toolbox."
