From actor Cary Elwes, who played the iconic role of Westley in The Princess Bride , comes the New York Times bestselling account and behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cult classic film filled with never-before-told stories, exclusive photographs, and interviews with costars Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, and Mandy Patinkin, as well as author and screenwriter William Goldman, producer Norman Lear, and director Rob Reiner.

The Princess Bride has been a family favorite for close to three decades. Ranked by the American Film Institute as one of the top 100 Greatest Love Stories and by the Writers Guild of America as one of the top 100 screenplays of all time, The Princess Bride will continue to resonate with audiences for years to come.

Cary Elwes was inspired to share his memories and give fans an unprecedented look into the creation of the film while participating in the twenty-fifth anniversary cast reunion. In As You Wish he has created an enchanting experience; in addition to never-before seen photos and interviews with his fellow cast mates, there are plenty of set secrets and backstage stories.

With a foreword by Rob Reiner and a limited edition original poster by acclaimed artist Shepard Fairey, As You Wish is a must-have for all fans of this beloved film.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Elwes shares his experience as one of the lead actors in The Princess Bride-from his initial meetings with director Rob Reiner to the 25th-anniversary screening of the film. He includes trivia about the production, and the various challenges he faced personally and professionally throughout. Elwes peppers the memoir with interviews of various people involved with the production of The Princess Bride, including Reiner, Robin Wright, Christopher Guest, and Wallace Shawn. Some of them, such as Reiner and Wright, even narrate their contributions in the audio edition, effectively conveying their excitement about the film. The absence of the voices of some of those interviewed leads to an imbalance, however, with Elwes narrating their sections. Even so, his voice is light and energetic, and it's clear that he is smiling throughout the production. An S&S/Touchstone hardcover. (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
