Last week, I interviewed the Israeli writer Etgar Keret, with a focus on his work for film. One bit:
Has working as a director affected how you have adapted your work for the screen?
I usually prefer not to adapt my stories. An adaptation is a reading of a text and a writer’s reading is usually less surprising and interesting. $9.99 was a great experience but I don’yt believe I’ll write any more adaptations in the recent future.
