Editorial Reviews

Review

"[C]ompelling . . . full of practical advice for the aspiring screenwriter."--The New York Times

"[A] shrewd and beguiling blend of Hollywood war stories, screenwriting shoptalk, and . . . unstinting joie de vivre."--The Boston Globe

"Goldman still proves a racously engaging guide to the business."--Variety


From the Inside Flap

From the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Princess Bride (he also wrote the novel), and the bestselling author of Adventures in the Screen Trade comes a garrulous new book that is as much a screenwriting how-to (and how-not-to) manual as it is a feast of insider information.

If you want to know why a no-name like Kathy Bates was cast in Misery-it's in here. Or why Linda Hunt's brilliant work in Maverick didn't make the final cut-William Goldman gives you the straight truth. Why Clint Eastwood loves working with Gene Hackman and how MTV has changed movies for the worse-William Goldman, one of the most successful screenwriters in Hollywood today, tells all he knows. Devastatingly eye-opening and endlessly entertaining, Which Lie Did I Tell? is indispensable reading for anyone even slightly intrigued by the process of how a movie gets made.
