Given the number of books I haven’t read at all, it sometimes seems a bit mad re-reading particular books. But it is nice to revisit old favourites. And I always like to re-read a book if a movie version is on the way, particularly if the movie is based on a book by one of my favourite authors.
Which is why I’ll have to get my skates on for What Maisie Knew, due for release in the US this month. The movie, starring Julianne Moore, is a modern re-telling of the Henry James classic.
Also on the horizon is Tiger Eyes, based on the book by Judy Blume. It’s been decades since I read Tiger Eyes but I think Judy Blume’s work never dates. The movie is slated for limited release in the US in June – suspect it will be straight to DVD for Australian audiences.
