Celebrating the re-release of her essay collection Meaty, author Samantha Irby was just featured on The New York Times' "By the Book" segment. Her answers, as ever, are refreshingly weird:
What are your favorite movies or shows based on books?

Is “The Real Housewives of New York City” based on a book? Haha just kidding. I want to say something like “Atonement,” by Ian McEwan, so that I can trick you into thinking that I am a serious person, but the truth is I never read the book OR saw the movie. I read “Misery,” by Stephen King, and that movie was amazing. I can’t wait for some overzealous fan to kidnap me and make me write about diarrhea at gunpoint!
...I treasure that woman.
