Jordan Peele brings Lovecraft Country to the screen, we chat about the best and worst book adaptations plus interviews with Matt Ruff and Kim Fu.

Author Matt Ruff joins us to talk about his book Lovecraft Country. Inspired by mid-century African-American travel guides and classic sci-fi and horror, the book is being adapted in a miniseries for HBO. Then, we talk about book-to-screen adaptations: the ones we love, the ones we hate, and the ones we can't wait to see. Kim Fu, author of The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore, talks with us about her book, why children make interesting characters, and the difference between writing poetry and prose.
