Weekend Links, Thursday Edition

We haven't done a weekend links in a while. Here are some stories that have captured our attention lately:

Jonathan Demme - director of The Silence of the Lambs and Rachel Getting Married - plans to make an animated feature-length movie adaptation of David Eggers' Zeitoun.

The Onion A.V. Club is profiled by the Chicago Tribune as it releases Inventory.

The Wall Street Journal reviews Bill Simmons' The Book of Basketball. Who would have expected the WSJ, of all papers, to be the first to review it?

The New Yorker has published a new short story by Jonathan Lethem.

And finally, just because its awesome:
The Thermals - "I Called Out Your Name"

If it has to be animated, "Zeitoun" should definitely strive to emulate "Waltz With Bashir," one of my favorite movies from last year whose style and substance are perfectly matched.

A live-action recreation of the book's Hurricane Katrina setting would be much more expensive and controversial, too.
