With the entire entertainment world focused on the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey film (and confirmation that two more are in the works), I thought now would be a good time to look at what I've written about the phenomenon. I don't think I'm forgetting any but will update if I remember something else I've done on it. I've also been quoted more times than I've covered the topic. I haven't bought a ticket yet, and may still be able to find my way into a screening next week in New York, though I kind of want to see it amongst my people, that is, suburban New Jersey couples on Valentine's Day weekend dates. These are in chronological order, starting with the Long Island E.L. James luncheon that was my first piece for The New York Observer.
