THE BLING RING, From Article to Movie and Book

The Bling RingThere are novel adaptations and there are novelizations, but this weekend brings a new twist.

Sofia Coppola’s film, The Bling Ring, opening tomorrow in NY and LA and expanding nationwide next week, is based on a 2010 Vanity Fair story by Nancy Jo Sales, “The Suspects Wore Louboutins,” about a group of affluent Valley kids who stole from celebrity wardrobes. One of the stars is Harry Potter’s Emma Watson.

The article has been expanded and released as 288-page trade paperback (S&S/It; S&S Audio). Reviewing it last week,  People magazine gave  it 3.5 of 4 stars. The Awl calls the book a “Smart-Person Beach Read.”
