Three years ago I read and reviewed a good novel: "Made For Love," by Alissa Nutting. The book presents a funny story about our time. Its main character, whose father is in love with a sex robot, flees her bad marriage to a tech billionaire. At the time Nutting wrote the book she was a Midwest college professor.
A year later, Nutting and her husband moved to Los Angeles to turn the story into a television show. The show was picked up by HBO Max as a 10-episode series and starts next week. It will star Ray Romano, as the father with the robot, and Cristin Milioti whom you'll recognize from dozens of shows like "How I Met Your Mother." (Milioti grew up in Cherry Hill, NJ which is where my wife Robin is from.)
What this tells me is that dreams can still come true. One day you can be an under-paid teacher toiling in obscurity and the next a powerful entertainment executive rubbing shoulders with pretty actors in Hollywood.
Thanks for the recc! I'm glad to see more book to screen adaptations. It's much nicer than reboots and gives unique stories a new audience.ReplyDelete
This is very interesting Ally, I like to see how novels turn into movies. As a book lover and a movie enthusiast, I actually am interested in watching this.ReplyDelete
I like the message behind it, this is definitely something I am going to look into :D
Thank you for sharing!
You're welcome. Thanks for visiting.Delete
The plot sounds too crazy not to watch/read! Thanks for the recommendation.ReplyDelete
Good for her! It's nice to know that excitings can happen to people. Mind you, there's nothing wrong with obscurity...ReplyDelete
Yes. I crave obscurity.Delete
That's awesome! I've seen this advertised, but we don't have HBO Max.ReplyDelete
Neither do we. I'll catch it when it's released on DVD.Delete
Oooh thats so interesting! And didn’t know your wife is from Cherry Hill. I know it but by name only 🥰❤️ReplyDelete
She grew up and spent her life there. I know it now from frequent visits to her family and friends.Delete
Awesome takeaway, Ally! So true that one never knows when success beyond their wildest expectations or dreams might come true.ReplyDelete

I've been following the author since publication of her second novel. It's fun to root for people when they're unknown and later see them bloom in the spotlight.Delete
