Amazon reviews:

"The screenplay effectively marries Washington Irving's literary journey with his legendary literary creations, Rip Van Winkle and Ichabod Crane. Also of interest is the enduring friendship that develops between the two Washingtons, that is, Washington Irving and Washington Allston. A delightful read."

"De Sapio's portrayal is both clever and humorous as he weaves fact and fiction (Irving's) to depict much of Irving's adult life. Through Irving's struggles as a writer, De Sapio includes vignettes from Irving's family, friendships, and romances. He seamlessly blends dramatizations from Rip Van Winkle and Sleepy Hollow, concluding with Irving in his prime at Sunnyside, his home on the Hudson."
