Hollywood has a rich history of turning great pieces of literature into fantastically mediocre movies. Today we discuss some of our favorite books that, given the right treatment, would shine on the silver screen, but more likely would wilt under a coat of Hollywood gloss, sheen and superstardom. Discussed will be Charles Bukowski's Ham on Rye, Charles Willeford's The Burnt Orange Heresy, Judy Blume's Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, and Chester Himes' Cotton Comes To Harlem.
