My review for Book & Film Globe:

Film adaptations of favorite books are often a letdown. And sometimes, even the book itself falls short on subsequent rereads.

This is not the case with The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood’s

“Someone I flattered in a book pretends he owes me nothing. Oh the trash I have for friends.
- Martial (40 AD - 104 AD), Epigram V, xxxvi”
Martial, Epigrams

Roger Ebert
“We piled into the back of his big red Sun-Times truck: Robertson, McHugh, a bagpipe player, assorted other regulars, and Good Sydney Harris. Good Sydney Harris was a Spanish Civil War veteran, not to be confused with the Bad Sydney Harris, the Daily News columnist. Good Sydney had fallen into conversation with a dominatrix named Jake, who joined us.”
Roger Ebert, Life Itself

Dennis McFarland
“Jackanapes.”
Dennis McFarland, Nostalgia

Thornton Wilder
“There are few pleasures equal to that of imparting to a voracious learner the knowledge that one has grown old and weary in acquiring.”
Thornton Wilder, The Ides of March

Thornton Wilder
“As an anonymous letter has recently informed me, a dictatorship is a powerful incitement to the composition of anonymous letters. I have never known a time when so many were in circulation.

Thornton Wilder, The Ides of March
