King Kong

by Edgar Wallace, Merian C. Cooper, Delos W. Lovelace
Release date: 1932
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, fantasy

King Kong remains one of the most enduring icons of American popular culture – a massively destructive but curiously sympathetic giant gorilla whose rampage through New York City suggests, on a psychological level, the re-emergence of repressed desire. This novelization captures the pathos, drama, and horror of this story of the beast who loved a human beauty. The action begins with the controversial expedition of Hollywood filmmaker Carl Denham to Skull Island as he pursues a mythical monster. Enticing Kong with beautiful starlet Ann Darrow, Denham manages to chain the beast and bring him to New York, where he escapes to terrorize an entire city while pursuing the woman he loves.
