On a recent episode of the I Read Movies podcast, host Paxton Holley digs into the weird and wonderful novelization for E.T. the Extra Terrestrial titled E.T. in his Adventures on Earth written by William Kotzwinkle and published in 1982. This is a very zany book told directly from the perspective of the E.T. character and the story is chock full of all sorts of interesting perspectives and tangents not seen in the film. Paxton navigates listeners through the maze of weirdness in this really entertaining episode of the show that we highly recommend.
