On the 349th episode of Piecing It Together, Derrick Murray joins me to talk about American Fiction. Jeffrey Wright stars in a hilarious movie about a black writer caught between the worlds of what white and black audiences expect of his work. Puzzle pieces include Bamboozled, Wag The Dog, The Producers and Adaptation.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for American Fiction and the movies we discuss!
