Marisha Pessl http://nwpr.org en Brainy, Fat And Full Of Ideas: 'Night Film' Is A Good-Natured Thriller http://nwpr.org/post/brainy-fat-and-full-ideas-night-film-good-natured-thriller Novels are low-tech objects. They can't be plugged in, they've got no buttons or knobs, and they don't make your eyes pop out of your head as you watch creatures or asteroids zigzag across a screen. Usually, novels have no visual aids at all. So if you want to know what Anna Karenina looks like, well, you just have to read the book.<p>But Marisha Pessl's <em>Night Film</em> is eager to bust out of that old-fashioned, "he had blue eyes and she fell to her death" kind of storytelling.
