Flawed male protagonists are cropping up everywhere in film and TV. If you liked Breaking Bad or were a fan of the now late James Gandolfini, you should pick up Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From The Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad, by Brett Martin

    Why do you think so many more movies are orginating from books these days? I love watching movies after I’ve read the book. Whether the movie is a good or bad representation of the book, it’s still enjoyable to compare the two. Does Penguin actively pursue movie opportunities? Is there any way readers can chime in and contribute to these decisions?
