Gods and Monsters: A Novel

Gods and Monsters: A Novel

Christopher Bram

Previously titled Father of Frankenstein, this acclaimed novel was once the foundation for the 1998 movie starring Sir Ian McKellen, Lynn Redgrave, and Brendan Fraser. It trips again to 1957 la, the place James Whale, the once-famous director of such classics as Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, resides in retirement, haunted via his prior. Rescuing him from his too-vivid mind's eye is his gardener, a good-looking ex-marine. The friendship among those very varied males is typically tentative, occasionally touching, frequently dangerous—and consistently captivating.

This P.S. version positive aspects an additional sixteen pages of insights into the booklet, together with writer interviews, suggested interpreting, and more.
