Amazon are now taking pre-orders for The Wild Things, Dave Eggers‘ novel “based loosely on the storybook by Maurice Sendak and the screenplay cowritten with Spike Jonze“. The hardback is set to street in October, just ahead of the Where the Wild Things Are movie. Jonze’ film must be one of my most anticipated pictures of the year, and to think… well, to think how close we were to losing it for a while.
You might want the standard edition hardback, or perhaps a fur-covered edition. After the break, the full official blurb, as well as Eggers on the hows, whys and wherefores of this particular evolution of the story.
