In the final installment of our “Undercover” series, we head to the movies (or just your living room couch)! Some of today's biggest films and TV shows are adaptations of books. So what does it take to make a written story just as evocative on-screen? Can the movie *ever* be as good as the book? We take you inside the creative process for series like ‘Interview with the Vampire,' ‘Little Fires Everywhere,' and more.

We are celebrating a monumental milestone with a special episode of the Vulgar Geniuses Podcast. For our 100th show, we sit down with New York Times bestselling novelist Celeste Ng as we talk about her recent book, Our Missing Hearts. Bird Gardner is a 12-year-old boy who lives alone with his father after having their lives suddenly interrupted years prior when his mother, Margaret, a Chinese-American poet, is snatched away from their home. Book banning and kidnapping children from the homes of dissidents is the norm as America has shifted into a time of dystopian restlessness to maintain "American Culture" after economic peril and violence befall the nation. We speak with Ng about the similarities in her novel to the outside world, her hobby that helps her to unwind, and an item she was able to take from the set of Little Fires Everywhere.

LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE BLURB (pulled from Goodreads) Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: How Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down. In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned—from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. Enter Mia Warren—an enigmatic artist and single mother—who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenage daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than just tenants: All four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past, and a disregard for the rules that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community. When old family friends attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town—and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at an unexpected and devastating cost… Buy LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE >> Find Abigail and Jennifer: Website: www.abigailkperry.com | https://www.jenniferklepper.com/ IG: @abigailkperry | @jennifer_klepper Twitter: @abigailkperry | @jenklepper

Since then, she's gone from playing iconic roles in films (Legally Blonde, Election, Water for Elephants) to also producing and starring in her own TV shows and movies (Little Fires Everywhere, Big Little Lies, Wild).

**THIS EPISODE CONTAINS FULL SPOILERS** Well...that show only took 2 months to finish! Welcome to the series 7 finale of "Film is Lit!" In this episode, we cover Celeste Ng's best-selling novel, "Little Fires Everywhere," which spawned the - some would say "endless" - 2020 Reese Witherspoon-produced mini-series of the same name. The story focuses on two families living in Shaker Heights, Ohio, in the 1990s, whose lives become intertwined. Through prejudice and misunderstanding, the matriarchs begin to clash, ultimately leading to scorching consequences. This is the SECOND Hulu adaptation of a book that we've covered on this podcast, and both shows have been absolutely atrocious.

The World is Filled with LightningIn 2019, The New York Times asked Attica Locke what moved her most in a work of literature. Attica's response came back with one word: Wisdom. The New York Times rightly knew who to go to for this question. Attica is a five-time published, New York Times bestselling author. If you've yet to read one of her crime and suspense filled novels but have watched an episode of Empire or Little Fires Everywhere (or her upcoming Netflix Limited Television Series From Scratch produced and written with her sister Tembi Locke), you have had a glimpse into the worlds that Attica creates through the magic of her imagination and her pen. Her office is filled with awards for her creativity. When Attica writes, Hollywood and New York take notice, because something good is about to happen.But when Attica sits down to write, there are no critics in the corner applauding (this is no waking ritual of a 17th Century monarch). No studio executives rushing in to read and then approve the latest edits. It all begins with Attica showing up to face an empty Microsoft Word Doc, a flashing cursor, and an idea. An idea of what could be. Showing up is a recurring theme in Attica's journey as writer and human. The act of being present, taking up space and trying – even in the face of doubt – are essential ingredients for living. She says, “Your ability to then be additive to the lives of others, starts with you being able to show up for yourself.” Before I can give to others, my cup must first be full. In our conversation, Attica and I both show up and struggle together through the most challenging questions of our times as we contemplate what the world is and what it could be: Will this democracy last? Can black people afford forgiveness? Can we defeat the illusions of scarcity that Attica identifies as the central question of crime in her work? Our conversation is funny, sometimes raw and tear filled, but mostly it is the dialogue between two life-long friends who spend an hour together in fellowship as the world around us is filled with lightning. Attica sums it up in the final moments of our conversation, “The thing I care about on planet earth is kindness. Kindness. Kindness. And recognizing peoples' humanity.”Now that, Attica, is wisdom.Attica InformationAttica on IGPatrick InformationPatrick on IGPatrick on LinkedInFor more information contact Patrick at patrick@patrickhueyleadership.com

A television adaptation of the novel, starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, premiered in 2020.

One family is upper-middle class with a “typical” suburban structure: a mom, a dad, and four kids; the other is a single mom, Mia, and her daughter, who are newcomers to the town. In her conversation with Susan, Celeste discusses a flashback to how a young Mia first became interested in photography as a medium. For more, visit bookexploder.com/episodes/celeste-ng.

Jason not only engineers the scores, but often produces them as well, along with creating sound design and instrumentation. Jason has worked on films like Marvel's "Morbius,"“Paddington,” “Aquaman,” “The Harder They Fall,” “Coming to America 2”, “Godzilla: King of Monsters,” and the 2018 Oscar-winning documentary “Icarus,” among many others.  He's also mixed the music for the hit video games “Fortnite,” “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War,” “Assasin's Creed Valhalla,” “CyberPunk 2077,” and Sony Playstation's highly anticipated upcoming “God of War: Ragnarök.” among others.

For the next few months, we're sharing some of our favorite conversations from the podcast's archives. This week's segments first appeared in 2017 and 2015, respectively.Before “Little Fires Everywhere” was a hit series streaming on Hulu, it was a best-selling novel by Celeste Ng, who is also the author of the novels “Everything I Never Told You” and, most recently, the dystopian “Our Missing Hearts.” Ng came on the podcast in 2017 to talk about “Little Fires Everywhere,” which addressed themes of race, class and privilege in a fictionalized version of Shaker Heights, Ohio, where she grew up. “There's a real difference between the surface of things and what the true state of things is,” Ng told the host Pamela Paul during her appearance. “That's sort of a theme throughout — everyone in here, there's a difference between the surface of who they appear to be and who they actually are inside.”Also this week, we revisit Paul's 2015 conversation with the esteemed children's book author Judy Blume, who visited the podcast to discuss the recent publication of one of her adult novels, “In the Unlikely Event.”We would love to hear your thoughts about this episode, and about the Book Review's podcast in general.

"I dont want to pretend to be other people as a profession right now or ever again.  I feel my power lies in speaking my own words and sharing my own stories while giving myself the opportunity to fully express my creative well that has to be expressed.
