We follow The Kid as he traverses Richard Jessup's pithy text, calculating the odds of his life and preparing for the ultimate showdown with The Man. Then we switch gears and grip the armrests as The Kid is pummeled by Hollywood - and all its sexy, violent card tricks - in the complete text of the screenplay.

Using this Tango edition's unique similarity reporting and comprehensive dialogue matching tools we can then track the transformation of published novel to produced screenplay.

The book contains a complete comparison of all the characters, plots, as well as other interesting observations. Dialogue that the screenplay writers took word-for-word from the book is highlighted and the corresponding novel page numbers are noted. (The eBook release contains reciprocal dialogue linking as well as two complete versions of the book - one with the dialogue similarities marked and the other with no markings or links for pleasure reading.)

The parsed data in this book is a valuable tool for educators, students, novel authors, screenplay writers, readers interested in adaptations, and readers looking to dig into literature in a new and unique way.
