Book Vs. Movie: Slaughterhouse-Five The 1969 Kurt Vonnegut Masterpiece Vs. the 1972 Filmed AdaptationThe Margos continue “Banned Book Month” with one of the most controversial works by celebrated author Kurt Vonnegut, 1969's antiwar novel Slaughterhouse-Five: or The Children's Crusade: A Dirty Dance with Death. Vonnegut's fictional account of his real-life experience as a prisoner of war and the WW2 Dresden bombing was published at the height of the Viet Nam conflict and appreciated by millions who loved the science-fiction blend of sex, the futility of war, American hypocrisy, and the meaning of life. The lead character of Billy Pilgrim is “unstuck in time” as he moves from different events in life due to his traumatic war experiences. Captured by the Germans after the Battle of the Bulge, the weak Pilgrim and his cohorts are marched to Dresden during the waning days of WW2, not knowing that the allies were planning to bomb the open city that had approximately 25,000 citizens who were not in the military. By staying in a meat locker underground, he and a few others survive only to have to clean up what is left behind. When he returns home, he encounters aliens from Tralfamodore who bring him to their planet to study him. This is when he learns he can time jump and find out exactly when he will die. In the end, he finds that life has no meaning, and…so it goes. George Roy Hill (The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) directs the filmed adaptation, which stars Michaels Sacks, Ron Liebman, and Valerie Perrine, which made the author very happy. So between the book and the film, which did we like better?In this ep, the Margos discuss:Kurt Vonnegut and his life's work plus his love of comedyBanned Books and recent U.S. issues with this at schools across the nationThe themes of the book (or at least we try!)Why this book is/was bannedThe cast: Michael Sacks (Billy Pilgrim,) Ron Liebman (Paul Lazzaro,) Eugene Roche (Edgar Derby,) Sharon Gans (Valencia,) Valeria Perrine (Montana Wildhack,) Holly Near (Barbara Pilgrim,) Perry King (Robert Pilgrim,) Kevin Conway (Roland Weary,) Frederich von Ledebur (German Leader,) Sorrel Booke (Lionel Merble,) Roberts Blossom (Wild Bob Cody,) John Dehner (Professor Rumfoord,) and Richard Schaal as Howard W.

Book Vs. Movie: The Chocolate War Robert Cormier 1974 YA Novel Vs. The 1988 Keith Gordon FilmThis September, the Margos are going to cover books that have been placed on “Banned Books” lists at schools and libraries in America over the last 100+ years, starting with The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier, which has consistently been banned in high schools for language, religious questioning, and sexual imagery since its publication. The story of Jerry Renault, a lonely high school freshman at a Catholic school mourning the loss of his mother and trying to figure out how to find his way in life while maintaining his individuality. The main high school clique, the Vigils, run by creepy Archie, wants Charlie to refuse to sell chocolates to make him stand out (badly) to Brother Leon. Leon needs to sell 20,000 boxes of chocolates because he borrowed too much cash ahead of time and the school administration is close to finding this out. When Jerry is “allowed” by the Vigils to sell the chocolates, he continues to refuse to cause an escalation of destabilization and violence at the school. Was it worth it for him to “disturb the universe?” The film, directed by Keith Gordon, was made for a tiny budget (used mostly for the kickass 80s soundtrack featuring Kate Bush and Yaz) and made little impact at the time. It is now having a revival due to the popularity of Bush's Running Up That Hill feature on the Netflix show Stranger Things. So between the book and the film, which did we like better?In this ep, the Margos discuss:Banned Books and recent U.S. issues with this at schools across the nationThe themes of the book Why this movie may be controversial and why it also strikes a chord with readersThe cast: John Glover (Brother Leon,) IIan Mitchell-Smith (Jerry,) Doug Hutchinson (Obie,) Wallace Langham (Archie,) Corey Gunnestad (Goober,) Brent Fraser (Emile,) Robert Davenport (Brian Cochran,) Jenny Wright (Lisa,) Bud Cort (Brother Jacques,) Adam Baldwin (John Carter,) and Ethan Sandler as David Caroni.Clips used:Jerry refuses to sell the cookies The Chocolate War trailerBrother Leon harassed BaileyLisa meets JerryArchie and John Carter know they need to sell more chocolate.

Book Vs. Movie: The Farewell The Lulu Wang Story from NPR's This American Life & the 2019 FilmThe Margos have a special guest for this episode devoted to an NPR story by writer/director Lulu Wang. Kristen Meinzer (co-host of the By the Book & Romance Road Test podcasts) is a return guest who wanted not only to talk about her new shows but also to share one of her recent favorite films, which is an adaptation of a true story contribution by Wang she shared with This American Life in 2016 (episode 585: In Defense of Ignorance.) In her audio essay called What You Don't Know, Wang's family deals with the news that her grandmother has terminal cancer by not telling her she is sick but rather all coming together in China under the guise of a lie. That they are there for a marriage. It's a hilarious and heartwarming story about what true love means and cultural respect. We won't give away the ending, but it will surely find a place in your heart! Rakuten Kobo sponsors this particular episode. They want to introduce our listeners to Canadian Chinese romance author Jackie Lau who has just her newest work, the sexy, funny, and unconventional The Unmatchmakers. Plot:From the author of DONUT FALL IN LOVE comes a perfect summer love story set in the forested paradise of Canadian cottage country that asks the question: Can love beat the odds when the odds are two mothers dead-set against it? (This book has Canada-core down! Tim Horton's coffee, butter tarts, kayaks….) SynopsisYou'd think my mother would be trying to set me up with architect Neil Choy, the unmarried son of her best friend. But you'd be wrong. My single mother has always been fiercely independent. Since I was a small child, she's always told me not to believe in fairy tales and that I don't need a man. So she's failed to mention that Neil is a total hottie in glasses. When I see him on a multi-family cottage vacation for the first time in a decade, I'm in for quite a shock. (I nearly fall in the lake, but let's keep that a secret.) He sure can grill a mean steak and mix a killer cocktail, plus he's pretty impressive in a kayak. Yes, he's a little stern and grumpy, but that just makes him more fun to tease—and makes it more satisfying when he quirks his lips in my direction. Even though my mind is spinning romantic fantasies, I'm not entirely sure how he feels. And I'm afraid that if anything happens between us, it'll screw up the friendship between our staunchly anti-relationship mothers. Especially since they've been acting increasingly weird since we arrived—I will never forgive them for the S'mores Incident. I think they're trying to sabotage my love life, and I'm starting to worry that I won't make it through this bizarre summer vacation… About the AuthorJackie Lau is a biracial, Asian-Canadian author specializing in contemporary romantic comedies in Toronto/Ontario. The main characters of her books are usually of Asian heritage and often include interracial couples. Jackie has a background in engineering and geophysics and has written many main characters who work in STEM.

Book Vs. Movie: ElectionThe 1998 Novel Vs. the 1999 FilmThe Margos have had the Tom Perrotta novel Election on their list to cover since the podcast began in 2008, but for some reason--it was not made available until this summer. Who could forget Reese Witherspoon's performance as Tracy Flick? Matthew Broderick's last line in the Alexander Payne movie? The story is about an ambitious woman who will win her high school presidential campaign no matter what made Witherspoon a star. Her character became an avatar for people who tried too hard and were overbearing. Tracy believes she will easily win the election, not counting one of her teachers (Mr. M.) has it in for her; one of her fellow students is doing it as a goof (nice, but not very bright Paul Warren) while his sister (Tammy) is doing it in retaliation against Paul's girlfriend Lisa (who used to date Tammy.) The teacher who has sex with Tracy (while his wife is pregnant!) loses his job, which makes Mr. M. angry, and he feels he needs to rob her of an election win. Now that there is a new Perrotta novel, a sequel called Tracy Flick Can't Win, is it time to have a new look at not only her character but also the plot in the first place? Who were the villains here? Why does Mr. M. hate her so much? The Margos have so much to unpack here!This episode is sponsored by Kensington Books and the novel Twice a Quinceaňera by Yamile Saied Méndez.“This book will set your dreams on fire” –praise for Yamile Saied Mendez by Reese Witherspoon for Furia by Yamile Saied Méndez.Instead of losing the deposit on her wedding venue, a jilted bride decides to throw herself a quinceañera (times two) for her 30th birthday in this effervescent rom-com from Yamile Saied Méndez, the acclaimed author of the Reese Witherspoon YA Book Club Pick FURIA. For fans of Never Been Kissed, 13 Going on 30, and The Wedding Singer…con azucar y amor. One month short of her wedding day—and her thirtieth birthday—Nadia Palacio finds herself standing up to her infuriating, cheating fiancé for the first time in…well, ever. But that same courage doesn't translate to breaking the news to her Argentinian family. She's hyperventilating before facing them when she glimpses a magazine piece about a Latina woman celebrating herself—with a second quinceañera, a.k.a. Sweet 15! Yamile (pronounced sha-MEE-lay) Saied Méndez is an Argentinian-American Pura Belpré gold medal-winning author of picture books, middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction. An inaugural Walter Dean Myers Grant recipient, she's a graduate of the Vermont College of Fine Arts and Voices of Our Nations (VONA). Her young adult novel, Fusia, was a Reese Witherspoon X Hello Sunshine YA Pick and she's a founding member of Las Musas, a collective of women and nonbinary Latinx creators. Born and raised in Rosario, Argentina—to a family with roots from all over the world—she now lives in Utah with her Puerto Rican husband, five multicultural kids, two bilingual dogs, and one majestic cat.

Book Vs. Movie: James and the Giant Peach Roald Dahl's 1961 Children's Novel Vs. the 1996 Henry Sellick AdaptationThe Margos have covered Roald Dahl several times on this podcast for good reason, he has written dozens of interesting stories in the 20th Century. He is also a polarizing and controversial figure, but his influence on children's literature is undeniable. James and the Giant Peach is very typical in his storytelling in that it features a protagonist who is a small child that is smart, lonely, and is abused by the adults in their lives. Dahl dedicated it in 1961 to his daughter Olivia who died from complications of measles only a year after the book's publication. James Henry Trotter is an orphan sent to live with two mean Aunts after his parents die. They work him tirelessly until he meets a magician who gives him magic crystals--that he loses almost immediately. But, soon, a giant peach grows on his front lawn, sending him on a grand adventure. The Giant Peach takes James and his friends all the way to New York City, where they find more fulfilling lives. It's all so, Dahl-ish?!So between the book and the film, which did we like better?In this ep, the Margos discuss:Author Roald DahlThe themes of the book The live-action and animation of the movieThe cast: Paul Terry (James,) Miriam Margolyes (Aunt Sponge,) Joanna Lumley (Aunt Spiker,) Pete Postlethwaite (Narrator/The Magician,) Steve Culp (James' father,) Simon Callow (Mr. Grasshopper,) Richard Dreyfuss (Mr. Centipede,) Jane Leeves (Mrs. Ladybug,) Susan Sarandon (Miss Spider,) and David Thewliss (Mr. Earthworm.)

Book Vs. Movie: Barefoot in the ParkThe 1963 Neil Simon Play Vs. the 1967 Robert Redford & Jane Fonda FilmThe Margos love a good love story with beautiful people and funny writing. Barefoot in the Park by playwright Neil Simon is a story about two young lovebirds who live in New York City as newlyweds and are trying to find their way in the 1960s. It was Simon's longest Broadway hit and had several adaptations over the years. Corie (played by Jane Fonda in the movie) is a “free spirit” married to Paul (Robert Redford, who originated the role on Broadway) and plays a handsome square/lawyer who wonders if life with Corie ultimately makes sense. Her mother (Mildred Natwick) meets their “upstairs” neighbor Victor and helps Paul see that maybe he can learn to loosen up.So between the two, which did we like more? The play or the movie? This episode is sponsored by Kensington Books and the novel Twice a Quinceaňera by Yamile Saied Méndez.“This book will set your dreams on fire” –praise for Yamile Saied Mendez by Reese Witherspoon for Furia by Yamile Saied Méndez.Instead of losing the deposit on her wedding venue, a jilted bride decides to throw herself a quinceañera (times two) for her 30th birthday in this effervescent rom-com from Yamile Saied Méndez, the acclaimed author of the Reese Witherspoon YA Book Club Pick FURIA. For fans of Never Been Kissed, 13 Going on 30, and The Wedding Singer…con azucar y amor. One month short of her wedding day—and her thirtieth birthday—Nadia Palacio finds herself standing up to her infuriating, cheating fiancé for the first time in…well, ever. But that same courage doesn't translate to breaking the news to her Argentinian family. She's hyperventilating before facing them when she glimpses a magazine piece about a Latina woman celebrating herself—with a second quinceañera, a.k.a. Sweet 15! Yamile (pronounced sha-MEE-lay) Saied Méndez is an Argentinian-American Pura Belpré gold medal-winning author of picture books, middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction. An inaugural Walter Dean Myers Grant recipient, she graduated from the Vermont College of Fine Arts and Voices of Our Nations (VONA).

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for August 1, 2022 is: frolic • FRAH-lik • verb Frolic means “to play and run about happily.” One of the highlights of spring on the farm is watching newborn lambs frolic in the meadow. See the entry > Examples: “In front of her, kids frolicked on the playground and grassy field, dusting themselves off after tumbles and shrieking with joy.” — Kate Selig, The Mercury News (San Jose, California), 21 June 2021 Did you know? Frolic is a word rooted in pleasure. Its most common function today is as a verb meaning “to play and run about happily,” as in “children frolicking in the waves,” but it joined the language in the 16th century as an adjective carrying the meaning of its Dutch source vroolijk: “full of fun; merry.” Shakespeare's Puck used it this way in A Midsummer Night's Dream, saying “And we fairies … following darkness like a dream, now are frolic.” Verb use quickly followed, and by the early 17th century the word was also being used as a noun, as in “an evening of fun and frolic.”
