Interesting musings on book-to-film adaptations

As my regular readers know, I have a degree in translation studies. This is why, when I come across interesting articles or books about any aspect of the craft, I naturally want to tell the world about them.

Apart from Language X to Language Z renderings, "translation" can, among other things, refer to what is also called "adaptation", that is the rendering of one form of art into another, the most common being the adaptation of a book into a film.

Here is an interesting article on the subject by Salman Rushdie that I came across on the Guardian website.
