  1. August 13, 1961: Happy birthday, Tom Perrotta! The novelist couldn’t get his book, Election, published until it was made into an Oscar-winning film. He turns 52 today.

  2. Well only in the US are things done backwards. Make a movie of someone’s book and then suddenly a publishing company wants to make money from your work. America is pretty backwards with many things. I know because I live here.
