Okay all you girls on the train...


The author of “The Girl on the Train”steers away from a 
couple of popular genres: “I have (shamefully) 
never read any sci-fi, and I tend to avoid horror 
because I’m a wimp.”
What books are currently on your night stand?
“As If,” by Blake Morrison; “The Underground Railroad,” by
Colson Whitehead; Virginia Woolf’s “A Writer’s Diary.”
 I’m also listening to the audiobook of
 “A Brief History of Seven Killings,” by Marlon James.

Image result for billy lynn's long halftime walk
Yep. Ben Fountain's book will get the Ang Lee treatment and in 3D no less. 

I hosted the 
ML Wednesday Afternoon Book Discussion 
on the title to mostly 
favorable reviews.
 I gave the book 4-stars on GoodReads, so I cannot wait to see it. 
But seriously?   3D?    Well, it's Ang Lee, so sure, let's do it. 

And here's the trailer.

See you at the movies!
