Meg Wolitzer Goes Hollywood (Again)

February 25, 2019

Though The Wife didn’t take home any Oscars last night, the book world remained gleeful that one of their own, Meg Wolitzer, was there to celebrate the film adaptation of her 2003 novel. Wolitzer details the odd experience of seeing her characters brought to life on the screen in The New York Times: “While I always try to burrow into my perceptions in order to create characters, I am stopped short of actually visualizing them with police-artist precision. For me, facial blurriness comes with the territory, and I’ve grown accustomed to it over the years I’ve been writing fiction.”
