(1976)) at the start of a new year to get people to join. It was full of explicit sex, yet you can buy it in HMV now.
Has made three movies based on novels by Thomas Hardy
(1996), based on "Jude the Obscure," The Claim
(2000), re-setting "The Mayor of Casterbridge" from rustic England to a California mining town, and Trishna
