sapphire’s PUSH is being made into a movie


Push by Sapphire is one of my absolute favorite novels. Now it has been transformed into a film called Precious. This makes me nervous because movies usually do books no justice and taint your view of the story.

Apparently, Sapphire had the same reservations. Not sure how I feel about this. I guess I need some time to let it marinate in my mind.

I will say that I’m glad Sapphire is getting the recognition she deserves for writing such an amazing book.  I still don’t think I’m going to go see the film, though.  I’ll probably just spend that time rediscovering the book (since it’s been about eight years since I last read it).

Anyway, here’s a good article I found about the book.
