Hornsby on Rushdie

I have been following Nick Hornsby’s blog pretty closely–I like the way he brings pop culture and the literary together. He reads and watches everything. Here is an excerpt about failure:

Salman Rushdie, writing in the Guardian about film adaptations, tells us that “the failures are so much more frequent than the successes”. Well, yes. But what about original screenplays? How’s the strike rate there? And novels? Even novels with serious literary intentions? Poems? Plays? Marriages? Lives?
