Marshal Zeringue, the force behind a great network of blogs called the Campaign for the American Reader, recently asked me to ruminate about film adaptations of novels and what I'm reading. Honestly, he couldn't have asked better questions. Movies are so important to me as visual and aural narratives, and I will never pass up an opportunity to blab about the book at my bedside. See below for my thoughts, which naturally begin with Channing Tatum and Zadie Smith.
My Book, the Movie: The Violet Hour
On Channing Tatum, Derek Cianfrance, and Julianne Moore
Writers Read: Zadie Smith's NW
On filling holes, moral minds, and the risky phrase "higgledy piggledy"
