Writing a Religious Novel


From Book to Film

In an inaugural Skype video interview, Press+1 interviews prolific Canadian author Yann Martel. Press+1 Editor-in-Chief, Kindah Mardam Bey, was in Toronto and Yann Martel took time out of writing his next book to talk in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Ahhhh, the wonder of technology. This is a 35 minute interview broken down in to four parts about the transformation from Canadian publication penned by Martel to Hollywood film directed by Ang Lee and what that journey was like for Martel. The last part which provides an indepth look as to what Martel's newest book is about has not been added to this page.
