Fugitive Pieces

Perhaps the single most luminously beautiful book I've ever read, indeed the first book I can remember that made me cry, Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels (a poet by trade) has been made into a movie starring Stephen Dillane.

Whether they can do justice to such a haunting, powerful novel remains to be seen. But the fact they made a damn good fist of Atonement gives me hope.

Yes! What an amazingly beautiful book - and looks like they just might get the film adaptation right.

Too early to tell, but off to an interesting start. When's it out??

Although should we be worried after seeing the cover - which I'm sure you already saw on I watch stuff:
