Jim Harrison A Really Big Lunch

syrup09 | Dec 25, 2011 04:16 PM

Has anybody out there read Jim Harrison's "A Really Big Lunch"? Published in the 2004 New
Yorker Food Issue, it's an account of a 37 course lunch he and some other people took part in in Burgundy France. The article is an amazing piece of writing reccouning a very oppulent event. My
question is could this piece be turned into a movie? I realize that the article doesn't have the conflict necessary in a piece of fiction, but couldn't a good screenwriter create one? (I tried writing fiction writing in college but I suck at it. I eventually got a Library Science Degree but I Digress.)
