The Author’s Dilemma

At the Book Bench, I wrote about book-to-movie adaptations, and specifically “Green Zone”:

One wonders, however, what author Rajiv Chandrasekaran thinks of “Green Zone,” the new Jason Bourne, err, Matt Damon-vehicle that was inspired by his non-fiction book “Imperial Life in the Emerald City,” in about the same way one imagines “National Lampoon’s Vacation” was inspired by Jack Kerouac. ”Green Zone: Based On The Narrative Nonfiction Book Imperial Life in the Emerald City, by Rajiv Chandrasekaran,” this is not.

I wrote about movie adaptations here, a while back, naming one I actually liked better than the book.
