MY MOVIE BUSINESS: A Memoir.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Random House, (1999.) dj. Hardcover first edition - While Irving starts this memoir with an account of his obstetrican grandfather, and includes an essay on the politics of abortion, this is primarily an account of his involvement with the movies, from thirteen years of working on the screenplay for The Cider House Rules (which of, course, has as its central focus the issues surrounding abortion, and for which he won an Oscar) to the unsucessful attemtpts to get his first novel, Setting Free the Bears, made into a movie. Interesting discussion on the differences between a novel and making a film. 170 pp plus 32 pp of photographs. ISBN: 0-374-503684.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket.
