Salman Rushdie and the Cannes
One of the greatest living literary voices, Salman Rushdie is in the news again. His amazing novel, Midnight's Children, which I've read over and over again, has been filmed by the equally amazing Deepa Mehta in Sri Lanka, a country I cherish so much.
And the Cannes Film Festival is on.
I've seen amazing pictures of celebrities from the Red Carpet and it is a good feeling I have that the art of filmmaking is celebrated glamorously, hoping that one day, writers will start walking in the same lane, smiling into the cameras.
