about

William Goldman''s modern fantasy classic is a simple, exceptional story about quests—for riches, revenge, power, and, of course, true love—that''s thrilling and timeless.

 

Anyone who lived through the 1980s may find it impossible—inconceivable, even—to equateThe Princess Bride with anything other than the sweet, celluloid romance of Westley and Buttercup, but the film is only a fraction of the ingenious storytelling you''ll find in these pages. Rich in character and satire, the novel is set in 1941 and framed cleverly as an “abridged” retelling of a centuries-old tale set in the fabled country of Florin that''s home to “Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passions.”

WILLIAM GOLDMAN (1931-2018) wrote books and movies for more than fifty years. He won two Academy Awards (for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President''s Men ), and three Lifetime Achievement Awards in screenwriting.
