You are correct! This is a great interview. It is interesting how a book comes out of a movie. It seems backwards yet a good author can make it work and even turn the book into one that people may say about it, "The book is better than the movie." Blessings, Janice
Thank you, Janice. Good point. Also, I like what she said about the need to name characters in books when you don't have to in movies.
This was a fascinating interview. Writing a novel from a movie does seem backwards but I'll bet we can all think of movies we've seen that we wished we could write about to flesh out the characters a little. Great interview. I'll watch for the movie and the book.
Thanks for the comments, Barbara.
What a great post. I can'y wait to read the book. It sounds awesome.God bless you guys.Glenda Parker
What an intriguing back story and characters! Thanks for a great interview and sounds like a great book--I'll tweet and post your interview on FB.
Fascinating interview (I liked your review, too, Sid), and I will very much look forward to the book and the movie. Which will make for an interesting study, now that we know the back-story. Thanks and blessings!
Thanks, Glenda, Sandra, and Lily. Appreciate the comments. Now I wish I had a copy of the book to give away! All I had to read was a pdf, but was thrilled to get it early.
They should have left the title for Joe Bradford's biography as it should be. It would be the best way to he joe and what he does if they really wanted to.
If the character of Samantha Crawford was non-existent, then there was never any connection to a white young girl at all?
If the person who was the character of Samantha Crawford is non-existent then there was never a person that made a difference in Joe's real life as was indicated?
