The Books Behind the Film & TV

_________________________

According to book trade figures the relationship between the book, TV and film industries has never been stronger, with new, hungry players such as Netflix and Amazon Prime spurring on the number of dramatic rights deals being struck.

 

 

So, we thought it would be great idea to put all these books in one place so you can easily find and read the 'book behind the film' - which we, of course, think is always better.

 

Do come back every month and keep up on the books that are inspiring the small and large screens.
