Speaking of long books, a televised version of War and Peace is coming to A&E later this year. It stars Paul Dano and Lily James, and while it isn’t a romance, it does have certain romantic elements that sweep readers away. It’s also a very long book, so the chance to see it distilled into a miniseries is lovely. Given that the book ends with a treatise from Tolstoy about the problems with how history is written, it’s also a good chance to bypass the lecture and get straight to the story.
