Into the Darkness: David Cronenberg Discusses His Debut Novel


Few film directors have the power to draw us into the dark and keep us completely enthralled like David Cronenberg, whether it be through a man’s transformation into an insect in the "The Fly," or by depicting an entire family’s identity shaken through an act of self-defense in "A History of Violence." Now, Cronenberg has moved from film to books with his debut thriller, "Consumed." Joined by Rick Moody, acclaimed author and co-founder of the Young Lions Fiction Award, Cronenberg will discuss his journey from screen to page.
