Book On Cable

March 12, 2008

adams.jpgI don’t have HBO. Heck, I don’t even have Headline News. Writing is not a business to get into if you want, say, an income. Then try getting gigs as a bird. There is, my friends, a discrimination story you’re not hearing about on Dateline.

Anyway, I know I will watch at least one HBO show in the coming weeks (if not live, at least on video). Beginning Sunday (March 16) HBO will air the two-part premiere of “John Adams,” based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography by David McCullough.

The seven-part series stars Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney. I like both of those actors. A lot. And Adams is a compelling figure. As sale of the McCullough book have shown. So this should be a good one. If you don’t have a copy yet, pick one up at the neighborhood bookstore.
