the movie is based on the book...not the other way around. it was put out again under the name The Dreamers, but The Holy Innocents is long out of print. i have seen copies go for almost 100 bucks.

I read the Holy Innocents [my local library has a lone copy!] and it was okay. There were several changes to the script because if they kept it true to the book, it would basically be a porno. And there was a whole section that was just unncessary and boring, save for the line about ratoutouille. I was also disappointed with the end, much more satisfied with how Adair ended it in the movie, happier. It's like what he would have written, I feel, if he were to edit and reprint the book. I will say this though: in the book the incest is explicit and there is boy-boy action aplenty.
