Amazon Options Screen Rights To Keith Donohue's Debut Novel

Daily News

Online Only, posted 8.10.06

Amazon.com recently optioned screen rights to Keith Donohue's best-selling debut novel The Stolen Child (Nan A. Talese, 2006). It is the online retailer's first venture into feature films and the creation of content not limited to its Web site.

Earlier this year Amazon launched Amazon Fishbowl with Bill Maher, a weekly program featuring authors, actors, and musicians that can only be seen on the retailer's Web site. Donohue was a guest on the July 20 episode of the show.

The Stolen Child explores issues of identity through the story of a seven-year-old boy who is kidnapped by forest-dwelling changelings.
