But was the book better? This week’s episode is all about book-to-movie adaptations. I talk with my friend, Tsh Oxenreider, about a whole bunch of books that have been turned into movies, and they dissect what makes a good adaptation and debate whether or not you must read the book first.
And, as usual, I admit something not-so-shocking to faithful listeners (or readers). This time, it’s about Jane Austen.
This episode is part of a special summer series, by the way, where I’m sharing some of my very favorite episodes of The Couch with you. Every episode I’ve curated for you will help you during this season that looks and feels different than anything we’ve experienced before. (And if you want to stay in touch this summer, please join me at The Couch Facebook group! We have so much fun over there, and I’d love to connect with you.)
