Most movie tie-in books are novelizations of the film script. If that's what they intend to do, it won't have anything to do with Bukowski, and I can't imagine who would actually buy it. I would hate to see his name on crap like that.
yeah you'd think that because of the movie, more people would want to read the original book. i would. im just buying the movie to see if they do the book justice. even though im pretty sure they won't. Honesty, Mickey Rourke played Chinaski well in Barfly...but Matt Dillion, I guess I'll have to see it to make my own decision.
yeah but for some reason don't you think the cover of the book will be the same as the movie poster? when books are turned into movies and they re-release the book with the cover of the movie that messes it all up. not that it matters or anything I just like original covers.
Hi, I'm sorry to resurrect this thread, but I didn't think I should create a new post for this.
I see it was mentioned that it's a reprint of the original, but the ISBN mentions "movie tie-in" on the copyright page like so:
ISBN-10: 0-06-113127-X (movie tie-in edition)
ISBN-13: 978-0-06-113127-1 (movie tie-in edition)
