Personal Quote:

To judge a film by the book it's based on is very harsh. Nobody goes to see Verdi's Falstaff and goes home and reads The Merry Wives of Windsor. Nobody berates Verdi for leaving out so much of the play. And that should apply to film as well. When you adapt a book for film, you lose 60 or 70% of it. See more »

Trivia:

He was awarded the C.B.E.(Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2005 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to literature. See more »
