Stephen King on the Small Screen, Paperback / softback Book

Stephen King on the Small Screen Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


This book is the first written by a film specialist to consider Stephen King's television work in its own right, and rejects previous attempts to make the films and books fit rigid thematic categories.

Browning examines what makes a written or visual text successful at evoking fear on a case-by-case basis, in a highly readable and engaging way.

He also considers the relationship between the big and small screen.

Why, for instance, are some TV versions more effective than movie adaptations and vice versa?

In the process, Stephen King on the Small Screen is able to shed new light on what it is that makes King's novels so successful and reveal the elements of style and approach that have helped make King one of the world's best-selling authors.
