A. J. Finn has written for numerous publications, including the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post and the Times Literary Supplement. Finn’s debut novel, "The Woman in the Window," has been sold in thirty-eight territories worldwide and is in development as a major motion picture from Fox.

An instant #1 New York Times Bestseller, "The Woman in the Window," Anna Fox lives alone, a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times ... and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble - and its shocking secrets are laid bare. What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one and nothing is what it seems.

Miles Joris-Peyrafitte in WAMC's studio March 3, 2017.
Ian Pickus

I’ve been following the story of the independent film As You Are for many months now, and now that I’ve finally seen the movie, I’m thrilled to have the chance to ask its director and co-screenwriter about it. The film is based in and around the Capital Region, with references to Washington Park and another local radio station. But it’s not merely a fun game of Albany geography. With a backdrop of violence, it’s a serious, sober coming of age story about two emotional teens, their friends and their volatile families.

Thelma Adams is an established figure in the entertainment industry. For two decades, she has penned celebrity features and film criticism for high-profile publications. She writes a weekly column for the New York Observer.

She joins us to discuss the 89th Academy Awards which will take place this Sunday.
