Beautifully written script, emotionally moving even on the page, with great photographs and insights by the man himself, Charlie Kaufman. Definitely recommended for fans of the film and of Kaufman's other work. It reads like a beautifully wrought play. Read full review

The screenplay to one of the inarguably most original, funny, tragic, and romantic stories ever told. Author Charlie Kaufman won an Oscar for this mind-bending tale of love, memory, and the foolish nature of the human heart. Worth buying solely for the fascinating introduction. Read full review
