The worlds of books and movies frequently collide – and not just on the crowded surface of my desk. I like to keep an eye on the books-turned-movies world, to give myself time to read the book before the movie. Doing things in that order seems to me, most of the time, the most satisfying way to experience both forms. Generally I try to read the book far ahead of the movie, so I can forget some of it and the movie can hold some surprises. Hence this list, of movies likely to turn up here in the second half of 2018; happy reading (and watching)!
