After months of fits and I starts, I recently published my first book, The Totally Geeky Guide to The Princess Bride, about the cult favorite flick, and to celebrate, I’m gonna give away ten autographed copies. Here’s the scoop on the book:
Do you know the Three Terrors of the Fire Swamp? Have you fallen victim to one of the Classic Blunders? If you’d love to surrender to the Dread Pirate Westley, then you need this geeky deconstruction of the cult-favorite movie ‘The Princess Bride,’ by popular and respected film critic and geek-watcher MaryAnn Johanson.
In her breezy analysis, Johanson explores why this delightful film — full of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, and miracles — has endeared itself to millions of moviegoers. From its unusual structure to its archetypal characters, its wonderful quotability to its outrageous humor, Johanson delves into the surprising depth and profound wisdom to be found in this wildly entertaining adventure/fantasy/romance/comedy.
MaryAnn Johanson has been called “one of online’s finest” film critics by Variety. Her pop culture thinkery appears at FlickFilosopher.com, which Time magazine has praised for its “snarky, well-informed commentary.”
If you don’t want to wait to win, buy an unautographed book at Amazon. Or buy an autographed copy directly from me.
