On Page and Screen

Bringing together great literature and its equally great screen adaptations.

Note: Authors are included here if I own a screen adaptation of at least one of their works and have either reviewed / blogged about that screen adaptation or about any one of the author’s literary works.  At the same time, however, for each of these authors I am listing all of their literary works that I have reviewed or blogged about, regardless whether these specific works have also been adapted for the screen and / or I have also reviewed / blogged about the screen adaptation. — “On location” links may refer either to the author or to their works.
