Ethan Coen on True Grit

Interesting item in LA Timed Jacket Copy re the Coen brothers and how they approached Charles Portis' True Grit:
"We both saw the movie as kids when it first came out, but we don't really remember it very well, honestly," Coen said. "I read the book to my kid, out loud, a few years ago and then we started talking about taking our experience of the book and what we liked about the book and making a movie out of that. It's an unusual western story, a novel that's very funny and touching and compelling in many, many different ways."

Now that I've loved both movie versions, I'm dying to read the book, too.
