Tess of the D’Urbervilles. It was the first book I adapted for the screen and gave me the confidence to write something other than comedy. Adaptation does that sometimes – gives you a hand-up into new territory. Also Chapter 15 contains the germ of the idea for One Day, for which I will always be grateful.
While you’re scrolling on your phone, it’s easy to become desensitised to art. But even in the depths of an absent-minded Instagram binge, Keith Rankin’s art will stop you in your tracks.
Rankin’s surreal work might reprise the sensation of spotting eye-grabbing images when you were a kid, or while hunting through the shelves of a charity shop. His artworks bring to mind the deliciously garish covers of sci-fi novels, old arcade game machines, vintage horror films, and the diagrams in those dogeared science books you had at school. This aesthetic mirrors the world of music he’s in.
The best nonfiction books of 2020 so far
The Amazon editors' list of the Best Nonfiction Books of 2020 showcases books in a wide variety of subjects. One could easily argue that it's the most varied list of all the category lists we produce for the Best Books of 2020 So Far. I've selected five books to highlight below, and I found it interesting—once I stepped back and looked at the books—to realize that I had chosen two that explain why we do or don't do something (Why We…

Boys & Sex: Young Men on Hookups, Love, Porn, Consent, and Navigating the New Masculinity by Peggy Orenstein
In her 2016 book, Girls & Sex, Peggy Orenstein spoke with hundreds of high school and college-aged girls about their thoughts on hookups, love, body shaming, virginity, abstinence, and much, much more. Now Orenstein talks with boys from the same age group, revealing that their path through the modern sexual landscape is just as twisty and thorny, if not more so, as…
Dirt: Adventures in Lyon as a Chef in Training, Father, and Sleuth Looking for the Secret of French Cooking by Bill Buford
It seems like a crazy idea to pick up stakes from a comfortable life in New York and move your wife and three-year-old twins to a city in France (not Paris) to look for a job in a restaurant. It might make more sense if you are Bill Buford, author of Heat, the 2006 book that did for Italian food what, frankly, Dirt will do for French cuisine. But that…

At every turn, she saw a…

Despite the blizzard that raged that day, he came from the Bramblehurst railway station on foot, wrapped chilly in a wide coat. His neck was wrapped in a thick scarf, and his face was…
Ray Bradbury. 451 ° Fahrenheit.
And why haven't I read it before?
This book is not only a reference to the events of the past, but also a novel about the future, in which all books and written publications are mercilessly burned, and fire workers are now responsible for their destruction.
The author in his work condemns censorship and restriction of free will. He also cites the role of the media in brainwashing people and creating intelligent clones.
It is frightening that…
Upcoming book-to-film adaptations
Reading has been the thing getting us through lockdown, and as lockdown eases we have hope that we will be able to slowly return to normal activities over the coming months. Luckily there are some excellent movies—adapted from excellent novels—slated between now and Christmas, and if the dates don't change for theatrical releases we may even leave the house to watch a movie in a theater (watching Emma in a theater back in the spring seems…
