The Maid’s Version by Daniel Woodrell – review

It has been seven long years since Daniel Woodrell gave us a novel.  Seven.  Loooong.  Years.  In that time Woodrell’s star has undoubtedly risen, with a high profile movie having been made out of Winter’s Bone and beautiful reissues of his work coming out in the wake of said film.  In other words, the...

Winter’s Bone by Debra Granik – Review

Debra Granik has given the movie-going public a damn good adaptation of a great book.  In fact, the Nerd would argue that she did about as good a job as could ever be expected with her impeccable source material: Daniel Woodrell’s fucking ridiculously read-that-shit-right-fucking-now book Winter’s Bone.  If I hadn’t read the book already...

Some thoughts after re-reading Winter’s Bone

I finished a re-read of Winter’s Bone by Daniel Woodrell, something I’ve been meaning to do with the movie coming up real soon. This isn’t a review just a conversation starter for those that have read it. For those that haven’t yet read it. Do so. A couple of things came to mind after...
