Why did Adam Braver entitle his new book Misfit

Watch the film on Sunday and bring your insight to the book talk and signing on Monday!

Expertly directed by John Huston (The Maltese Falcon) from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize winner Arthur Miller, The Misfits is a probing, exciting drama of honesty, intensity and sheer poetic brilliance. Divorced and disillusioned, Roslyn Tabor befriends a group of misfits, including an aging cowboy, a heartbroken mechanic and a worn-out rodeo rider. Through their live-for-the-moment lifestyle, Roslyn experiences her first taste of freedom, exhilaration and passion. But when her innocent idealism clashes with their hard-edged practicality, Roslyn must risk losing their friendship...and the only true love she's ever known.

The film stars Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Eli Wallach and Montgomery Clift.
