Dave Eggers’ 300-Page Storybook Adaptation

51bsPAgjgfL._SL500_AA240_.jpgWhen the live-action adaptation of Maurice Sendak‘s classic storybook, “Where the Wild Things Are,” hits theaters in October, Dave Eggers will release his 300-page loose adaptation of the book.

Eggers co-wrote the film script with director Spike Jonze, and the experience inspired him to write much, much longer. Sendak fans around the Internets have fiercely debated the merits of the live-action film, and this book will undoubtedly stoke flame-wars into a towering inferno.

Here’s more from Amazon: “The Wild Things–based loosely on the storybook by Maurice Sendak and the screenplay cowritten with Spike Jonze–is about the confusions of a boy, Max, making his way in a world he can’t control. His father is gone, his mother is spending time with a younger boyfriend, his sister is becoming a teenager and no longer has interest in him. At the same time, Max finds himself capable of startling acts of wildness: he wears a wolf suit, bites his mom, and can’t always control his outbursts.” (Via Bookslut)
