When I find myself worrying about the inevitable bad or 1-star review, I find I’m not actually worried about that one person’s opinion.
What I fear is the opinion in my head. And that’s imaginary.
Ok, let’s get to it.
Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:
- Variety has a strong review of the adaptation of Jane Harper’s THE DRY. “mystery, suspense and punchy emotional drama” Still no word on how or when international audiences outside Australia will eventually see this.
- If you are on of the millions to fall under the spell of Omar Sy and Netflix’s LUPIN recently, CrimeReads has a deeper dive into the French source material.
- At the WaPo, Maureen Corrigan takes a look at what’s driving the success of the year’s “first blockbuster,” Ashley Audrain’s THE PUSH
From the gentleman thief, Arsene Lupin:
“What a pity that I am not an honest man!”
“I shall not be present at my trial.”
- What is your favorite contemporary adaption of a crime novel? I think mine might be Affleck’s THE TOWN, his take on Chuck Hogan’s PRINCE OF THEIVES. What about you?
Until next Thursday, happy reading,
