QUOTED: Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell on working with the Wachowskis
I was like Augustus Gloop in the Wonka factory….I’ve witnessed a long sequence of decisions, which I never had to make while writing a book. Intellectually, I know it’s a replacement, but I don’t feel a loss at all.
—David Mitchell, the author of the 2004 cult novel Cloud Atlas, on seeing his book turned into a movie. [New Yorker]
