News and Adaptations
Eric Bana has been cast as Aaron Falk in the film adaptation of Jane Harper’s The Dry. Super excited for this adaptation! Jane Harper is one of the best crime writers and her mysteries, characters, and settings are perfect for film/series adaptations.
Excited for the adaptation of Tana French’s Dublin Murders? We are! But you’re going to need Starz to watch it since they bought the eight-episode drama based on In the Woods and The Likeness. I’m super curious to see how the first two novels got blended into eight episodes. As much as I have been refusing to get anymore streaming services/channels. I may have to do a Starz add-on to Hulu for this one. *grumbles in vieja*
Continuing in exciting news: Polis Books launched Agora Books, a new imprint focused on crime fiction that explores important issues of our time, including culture, race, gender, sexuality, society, economy, and politics in unique and different ways, from a roster of talented and diverse authors. The first three books that will publish in 2019 are Three-Fifths by John Vercher, the story of a biracial man who discovers a childhood friend has become a neo-nazi; Remember by Patricia Smith, a novel about woman forced to reconcile with a painful past; and The Ninja Daughter by Tori Eldridge, the tale of a woman who dedicates herself to becoming a modern day ninja after the murder of her sister. Guess who already begged for galleys?!
