I am very pleased to announce that David Pitt, a stalwart Booklist reviewer and our “Reading the Screen” columnist, is the latest addition to the growing team here at Likely Stories. His beat? Why, films based on books, of course. Writing shorter blog posts instead of long-form columns will give him a chance to cover more books and more movies with greater timeliness. I know he’s already working on thoughtful pieces about Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and the Oscar-nominated films Precious and Up in the Air. I know I’m looking forward to more of David’s uncommonly observant analysis. So stay tuned!
