You Get a Movie Deal! You Get a Movie Deal! Everybody Gets a Movie Deal!

Fortunately, I carry a copy of 'Middlesex' with me at all timesMy latest MSN Movies gallery is up, using the premiere of “The Road” as an excuse to look at other big-screen adaptations of novels that made it into Oprah’s Book Club.

And yes, I left out productions that predate the formation of the book club by decades, like “East of Eden” and “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter”. It just made the pre/post thing impossibly convoluted.

By the way, Oprah — you know, since it’s just us here — how have you not managed to put “To Kill a Mockingbird” on your list after 13 years of book clubbing? That’s an oversight that just cries out for rectification.
