Here's how pop culture and literature have been intersecting lately ...
In honor of the book's thirtieth anniversary, All Things Considered looks at how Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt (and the movie adaptation of it) turned Savannah, Georgia, into a literary tourist destination (NPR).
Another analysis of a conversion: Celebrity authorship used to be for children's books and memoirs, but now it's increasingly for adult fiction, too (The Guardian).
A conversion that didn't happen: Reporter Max Evry, at long last, found David Lynch’s lost Dune II script, though he couldn't get Lynch to discuss it with him (Wired in full, The Passive Voice in excerpt).
