Have y’all seen Precious? I saw it last weekend with my mom, who had read the book. According to her, the book is a lot more jarring and difficult to read. It’s hard to imagine since the film was pretty graphic, but sometimes what your imagination shows you is a lot harder to “see” than what someone else orchestrated for entertainment’s sake. In any case, it made me want to read the book, for sure, and learn more about the author.
