A book with brains!
Prepare the Chianti and fava beans. Books and Nachos is having a month long meal with author Thomas Harris and his seminal creation Dr. Hannibal Lecter. As a companion podcast to the current movie review series over at NowPlayingPodcast.com, Stuart In LA is cracking the spines on the four novels that inspired the five films to feature the caged cannibal.
It took more than a decade for writer Thomas Harris to cook up Hannibal - the sprawling 1999 novel that finds Lecter evading capture in Italy to reunite with disillusioned FBI agent Clarice Starling in America. Does our notorious antihero get his just desserts, or is this unconventional love story too hard to swallow? Join Stuart now to find out!
