Jon Krakauer's (newest) book about Pat Tillman

Postby KarenZ » Thu Sep 09, 2010 11:56 am


As you may know, last year Jon Krakauer published a book about Pat Tillman titled Where Men Win Glory. I had heard that it was being made into a movie, and although The Pat Tillman Story - a documentary - was released last month, I can't find any evidence that the film was based on Krakauer's book. (The film seems to be playing in a limited number of cities right now.) Here's a video interview of Krakauer talking about his book.

Book TV: After Words: Jon Krakauer, "Where Men Win Glory"

"Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

There was a feature on the Today programme about the documentary which includes an interview with Pat Tillman's mother.
