Description: In "My Movie Business", John Irving tells of the thirteen years he spent adapting his novel The Cider House Rules for the screen -- for four different directors. He also writes about the failed effort to make his first novel, Setting Free the Bears, into a movie; about two of the films that were made from his novels (but not from his screenplays), The World According to Garp and The Hotel New Hampshire; and about his slow progress shepherding his screenplay of A Son of the Circus into production. The memoir also gives a fascinating account of the distinguished career and medical writings of the author's grandfather, Dr. Frederick C. Irving, a renowned obstetrician and gynecologist, who provided Irving with the medical background for The Cider House Rules.

Besides its qualities as a memoir -- anecdotal, comic, affectionate, and candid -- "My Movie Business" is an insightful essay on the essential differences between writing a novel and writing a screenplay.
