9780826452436: Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient (Continuum Contemporaries Series)
Críticas:

"The series comes as near to squaring various circles - popular / academic, 'good read' / 'classic Lit', novel / film of the book as any I know. And at best it goes a fair way towards reshuffling those categories and redrawing the boundaries. With the first volume, I was relieved. After two or three, I was hooked.

The books are invaluable for gathering out-of-the-way or ephemeral comment from TV and radio interviews and the web as well as from literary reviews.

Refreshingly upfront and up-to-date

Given the space, there are remarkably balanced film/novel comparisons of the most well-known examples

An important feature is the fully referenced bibliographies, including reviews and copious website addresses - the latter ranging from fanzines and authors' and publishers' own sites to academic discussion lists and online journals.

In method as in subject matter, these guides move freely on the interface between print culture and multimedia. Highly finished and pleasantly handleable as books in their own right, they gesture accommodatingly to both words and worlds beyond.

Taking the series as a whole, it also confirms two things: that narrative nowadays is generically highly hybrid and increasingly cross-media; and that an understanding of the processes of writing and reading 'contemporary classic' (or at least 'currently famous') fiction cannot be separated - yet must be distinguished - from the processes of making and marketing books and films."
The Times Higher Education Supplement, May 31, 2002

Reseña del editor:

This is one of a series of handy readers' guides to contemporary fiction. The books in the series all follow the same structure, starting with a biography of the novelist, including other works and influences. A full-length study of the novel draws out the most important themes and ideas. Also featured are summaries of how the novel was received upon publication and how it has performed since, including film or TV adaptations and literary prizes. Suggestions are made for further reading, including web sites and discussion forums, and there is a list of questions for discussion by reading groups.
