Announcing: A Single Man movie tie-in edition
The University of Minnesota Press is pleased and excited to announce that, in collaboration with the Weinstein Company, it has launched a movie tie-in edition of Christopher Isherwood's best-known American novel, A Single Man. The publication coincides with the December 2009 release of the critically acclaimed film of the same name, directed by Tom Ford and starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore.
The book is now available in bookstores nationwide; you can also order it here. UMP has launched a new book website, www.asingleman-book.com, which includes reading group tools, excerpts (print and audio), lots of links, and other Isherwood information.
The film A Single Man opens in U.S. theaters on December 11 (limited) and December 25 (expansion). A Single Man, Ford's directorial debut, received rave reviews at its world premiere at the Venice Film Fest, earning an award for the best gay-themed film, and best actor for Colin Firth's lead performance.
