Expanding Adaptation Networks

From Illustration to Novelization

This book addresses print-based modes of adaptation that have not conventionally been theorized as adaptations—such as novelization, illustration, literary maps, pop-up books, and ekphrasis. It discusses a broad range of image and word-based adaptations of popular literary works, among them The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Daisy Miller, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Moby Dick, and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The study reveals that commercial and franchise works and ephemera play a key role in establishing a work’s iconography. Newell argues that the cultural knowledge and memory of a work is constructed through reiterative processes and proposes a network-based model of adaptation to explain this. Whereas most adaptation studies prioritize film and television, this book’s focus on print invites new entry points for the study of adaptation.

Hannah learns that old wounds never die, especially in a retirement community full of vengeful murderers. When Hannah Ivy visits her friend Nadine Smith Gray at the Calvert Colony retirement community, she didn’t expect to be introduced to such a wide range of characters. Nor did she expect to become a volunteer in the memory care unit. Even more surprising is her discovery of the dead body of one of the residents. As it’s clearly not a victim of old age, Hannah helps the local detective sift through a disturbingly large cast of suspects. Seems old grudges never retire, but Hannah is determined to put a murderer on ice forever. “This is the thirteenth Hannah Ives mystery, and the series feels as fresh as the day it was born.” —Booklist
