Kramer vs. Kramer

Book Description

"A great read, breezy but detailed and candid, with great dialogue." —Dave Eggers

The best-selling, groundbreaking novel adapted into the Academy Award-winning Best Picture starring Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep, winner of five Academy Awards.

Published in more than fifty foreign editions, Kramer vs. Kramer led to a sea change in divorce and family relations in the United States and internationally.

Kramer vs. Kramer is Ted Kramer vs. Joanna Kramer, fatherhood vs. motherhood, freedom vs. responsibility, and finally, petitioner vs. respondent, as Joanna Kramer, in a bitter custody battle, tries to take the child she abandoned away from the husband she divorced. It is also a love affair of a kind-- of a father with his little boy.
