As You Wish Cary Elwes Cover Banner

As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of the Princess Bride
Hardcover | Kindle Edition | Audiobook
Written by Cary Elwes with Joe Layden
Forward by Rob Reiner
Simon & Schuster/Touchstone Books
Release Date: October 14, 2014

This is a fan book — a book from a fan to the fans. Actor Cary Elwes is the ultimate Princess Bride fan. His book, As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of the Princess Bride, written with some help from Joe Layden, and including a forward from director Rob Reiner, tells the tale of this fairytale, as a fairytale. This is not a negative criticism. It comes from a magical place. Elwes, who starred in the film, gushes about that experience from the first page to the last, and the rest of the cast, Reiner, Andy Scheinmen, Norman Lear, and William Goldsmith, author of the book and screenplay, contribute many first-person accounts of their experiences, echoing Cary’s sentiments. The Princess Bride was the first major acting job of Elwes’s career, and the one that he will be remembered for, for the rest of his life and beyond.
