A novel about revenge, old age, and Southern charm, Elizabeth Stuckey-French’s Revenge of the Radioactive Lady is due from Doubleday in February 2011.
The book trailer for Room juxtaposes sunny crayon drawings and a music-box rendition of “It’s a Small World” to create the perfect dark take of this unusual novel.

The novel The Wake of Forgiveness by Bruce Machart is forthcoming in October from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Today marks the U.S. release of two big book-to-film adaptations: Eat, Pray, Love and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
The movie adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir-cum literary-extravaganza stars Julia Roberts in the title role of a woman trying to find herself as she travels through India, Italy, and Indonesian.
Also opening today is Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, based on the comic series of the same name by Bryan Lee O’Malley. The film, starring Michael Cera, is about a Canadian slacker who must defeat his girlfriend’s seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to be with her. Watch the trailer below.
