By the Book: Unfilmable Books

Some books have long been thought of as unfilmable - too dense, too layered, too metaphorical, too internalised, take your pick - but in this episode, we wanted to explore whether that's true. And while we're at it, we also get into what kind of readers we are in terms of wanting to see someone else's version of a book play out on screen, and also whether the brave new world of prestige TV is changing the very definition of unfilmable books. Special guest Bahir Yeusuff of Skip Intro joins us.
