The lives of writers

An interesting post by Mr Jonathan Pearce, over at Samizdata, on which writers should have their lives turned into films. I thought I'd avoid the usual suspects (Orwell, Rand, Jefferson, etc), and go for something a little more unusual, in one of the comments.

It must be difficult making films of writers, because most of them never do anything more challenging than deciding on whether to eat either grapes or olives, with their Soho lunchtime salad, and then going really risque by having red wine instead of white. But nevertheless, still an interesting range of writers produced in the comment thread.
