I read widely from many genres. Perhaps this blog will feature fewer ratings and reviews, but I certainly intend to write about my reading life - it's the subject I most find myself wanting to talk about.

Notes on Adaptation: Fences

The Piano Lesson - August Wilson

The trailer for the upcoming August Wilson adaptation, "Fences," really got me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2m6Jvp0bUw

 

I've been an admirer of Wilson's since the early '90s. I read several of his plays at that time. But not since. 

 

Now I'm tempted to read the whole cycle - not in publication order, but in decade order that the plots move through the 20th century. 

 

Might be a good way to spend Saturday afternoons through the end of the year.
