Read full description of the books:
A young couple goes on vacation in London, Rome and Venice, in the hope of salvaging their faltering marriage. The quarrels, the agonies, the bickering and the swift changes of moods of Amos and Lila McCracken are fiercely and poignantly familiar, yet Goldman renders his domestic crisis as freshly as he does the character of their precocious little girl. This strong and moving novel attains a climax that is shattering in the outrageously sad and funny reaches of its inimitably fallible humanness.--From publisher description.

Read information about the authorGoldman grew up in a Jewish family in Highland Park, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, and obtained a BA degree at Oberlin College in 1952 and an MA degree at Columbia University in 1956.His brother was the late James Goldman, author and playwright.
William Goldman had published five novels and had three plays produced on Broadway before he began to write screenplays. Several of his novels he later used as the foundation for his screenplays. In the 1980s he wrote a series of memoirs looking at his professional life on Broadway and in Hollywood (in one of these he famously remarked that "Nobody knows anything"). He then returned to writing novels. He then adapted his novel The Princess Bride to the screen, which marked his re-entry into screenwriting.
Goldman has won two Academy Awards: an Academy Award for Writing Original Screenplay for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and an Academy Award for Writing Adapted Screenplay for All the President's Men. He has also won two Edgar Awards, from the Mystery Writers of America, for Best Motion Picture Screenplay: for Harper in 1967, and for Magic (adapted from his own 1976 novel) in 1979.
