Read a Movie

Last week, I watched two fabulous films ( "Fugitive Pieces"  and "Emotional Arithmethic")  adapted from Canadian novels, both written in the 1990s - by Anne Michaels and  by Matt Cohen respectively.   Both these works deal with Holocaust memories, family dynamics and survivors' deep-seated emotions.  I kept wishing I had read the books first!  By the way, these two novels would make a great comparison study for secondary school English students.  Michaels has published her long-awaited new novel,"The Winter Vault"  with very positive reviews.  Get your name on the waiting list!
