The piano: a novel

18 Reviews
In the award-winning film The Piano, writer/director Jane Campion created a story so original and powerful it fascinated millions of moviegoers. This novel stands independent of the film, exploring the mysteries of Ada's muteness, the secret of her daughter's conception, the reason for her strange marriage and the past lives of Baines and Stewart.

Review: The Piano

User Review  - Samantha Anderson - Goodreads

This was a really good book, which, unusually, was written after the film was made. It filled in some of the details that were missing from the film and had a more rounded ending. Read full review
