Book Vs Movie

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Story Behind the 2008 Novel & the 2018 Movie

Are you ready for a little 1940s weepy? The Margos sure are as they talk about the novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society that was started by Mary Ann Shaffer who brought on her niece Annie Barrows to help her finish when she became ill. Shaffer spent some time fogged in at the airport on the island of Guernsey which is located by the English Channel.

After checking their local bookstore she found out the island was occupied by the Germans in World War 2 and she became obsessed with the idea of placing a historical fiction story based there.  The novel is told in an epistolary format and features an array of intriguing characters who come together under terrible circumstances and create their own magical world.

Taking place in 1946, London-based writer Juliet Ashton is stymied on what to write after her last book was a disappointment in sales. After starting a correspondence with a group of book club members based in Guernsey she impulsively decides to visit the island and her life is upended by the power of love.

The film is from director Mike Newell and at the time of this recording, is streaming on Netflix.
