An authors response

Following on from yesterday’s musings on the upcoming film adaptation of Cloud Atlas, I found this interesting article written by the book’s author David Mitchell. He talks about the strangeness of seeing his work being brought to life by members of the Hollywood elite, but he also seems very accepting of the inevitable changes that needed to take place to turn such a complex narrative into a sensible length film – I wonder how accommodating other authors have been when in similar situations?
