Jill Soloway Is Bringing 'I Love Dick' To TV
The lil legend behind your fave dramedy (Transparent, duh) is bringing Chris Kraus' good book I Love Dick to television. The novel, that you might remember from the first edition of our very own book club, is getting a pilot on Amazon. The book is one of those obscure but influential gems that has built up a super cult-y following over the years (Lena Dunham and Tavi Gevinson are both fan girls).
Your girl Jill will be responsible for bringing the v meta, sorta of autobiographical story of a couple's obsession with a theorist named Dick to life. We're pretty confident that whatever she does will be that good that the network will have to produce a full season.
The pilot has just been ordered, so you've got plenty of time to read the book, and then get analytical with our pal Cook Suck over at the Oyster book club.
