I read the book. Can't say it was my favorite. Was "interesting", though.

Ever notice the book and the movie are soooooooo different. That annoys me. Sex and The City . The book is soooooooo different same with Lipstick Jungle and its show on TV.

It will be in theaters later this year. It always takes the little indie movies longer to reach the Pittsburgh market, but there's no way it won't show up here after all the publicity it got.

As for the book, it's obvious that Mysteries of Pittsburgh was Chabon's first go at a novel, but Cavalier and Klay was brilliant, and I just finished Yiddish Policemen's Union and liked it a lot.

If you liked it, check out Wonderboys. Michael Chabon novel made into a film set and made here. Good too.

It hasn't been released yet. It's only done Sundance (and maybe other festivals?)
