"What I like most in Maier's giant work is the spine of this saga, the all-important record of influence the great soldier-statesman-historian's life exerted on the future American president." -- Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball, review in Chartwell Bulletin, The Churchill Centre

New Yorker Video Highlights "Masters of Sex" -- Emily Nussbaum Compares MoS with other historical dramas in a new review.


The New Yorker's Emily Nussbaum provides some insights about this season's "Masters of Sex" in  this video and also in this week's magazine. Emily didn't seem to know that Ep. 3's "Fight" drew heavily from the book with Bill's recollections of his father and about Virginia's long-lost romance with an Army Capt. - part of the emotional underpinnings of that episode. Nevertheless, we're thrilled with The New Yorker's high praise for the show and all that Michelle Ashford and Co. are attempting to achieve in adapting the book into a drama. I'm constantly amazed how much of the non-fiction biography Michelle has weaved into each episode, perhaps more so than any drama I've ever seen based on a book.
Here's The New Yorker's terrific video with Emily Nussbaum, one of the most literate and thoughtful critics out there.
