The original title of the book: Reconstructing Woody: Art, Love and Life in the Films of Woody Allen
It's about time we had the kind of in-depth study Nichols has written, with such rewarding insights. -- Vincent Canby Reconstructing Woody is an important contribution to the field of film criticism because few critics delve into the philosophical underpinnings of Woody Allen's scripts-and Nichols does this masterfully, with great perception, care, and depth. -- Ronald Schwartz, City University of New York All film collections should include this title. -- P. H. Stacy, Emeritus, University of Hartford CHOICE What began as a diversion provoked a larger revelation. In both works Nichols discovered a writer mocking the pretensions of philosophers whose words prove to be empty as, well, clouds. Is this similarity enough to make Manhattan's Allen a modern-day Aristophanes? Her focus is always on Allen the filmmaker and never on Allen the home-wrecker. More importantly, it is her conviction that Allen's real on-screen preoccupation is not his sex-life, but the interrelationships between art and life. -- John C. Chalberg Crisis, March 1999 Miss Nichols' approach to the topic of Woody Allen is peculiar, as she is a professor of political science, not film studies. What she brings to Mr. Allen's films is a way of thinking and analyzing that is unavailable to the run-of-the-mill film studies professor or critic. -- Pia Nordlinger The Washington Times Is full of valuable insights, especially in the way it examines the philosophical nature of a number of Woody Allen's films. Offers the reader a strong foundation on which to build an understanding of Allen and his work. Rocky Mountain Review
