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 CanbyWhat 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 "All film collections should include this title.--P. H. Stacy, Emeritus, University of Hartford "CHOICE "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 "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"
