Writing last fall on Tor.com (a wonderful essay), Jo Walton said, " ...Goldman wanted to write something like a children’s book with the thrills of a children’s book, but for adults. Many writers have an imaginary reader, and I think Goldman’s imaginary reader for The Princess Bride was a cynic who normally reads John Updike, and a lot of what Goldman is doing in the way he wrote the book is trying to woo that reader."
I, for one, have always meant to read "The Princess Bride" but have never gotten around to it. I'm so excited! Join us and let's talk about it. (BeckyJG)
