Short Film "Trailer" for Boyle’s The Women

Sometimes the concept of a “book trailer” — a short film meant to encapsulate a book and hence entice readers — seems a little hard to grasp. But done rightly, as in Jamieson Fry’s beautiful trailer for T.C.  Boyle’s novel The Women, the results can be galvanizing.

The Women, which is a fictional treatment of Frank Lloyd Wright’s rather dramatic romantic history, is now out in paperback.  You can read Katherine A. Powers’s review of the book here, and read Cameron Martin’s dialogue with T.C. Boyle here.
