It’s Based on a Book?

Pitch Perfect, the movie about a college a capella group, opening today, sounds like it has the makings of a hit. People analyzes its appeal, “Though Pitch is wallpaperd with cliches and aimed at folks who worship Glee, it’s funny enough … to amuse even those of us who like our music less earnest and back by a band.” The critics, as rounded up by Rotten Tomatoes, generally agree. Just a few (including the New York Times) were not amused.

Many may be surprised to hear that the movie is based on the 2008 nonfiction book by GQ editor, Mickey Rapkin, now re-released as a tie-in. Most libraries own just a few copies of the original, with some holds.
