William Boyd answers some questions on "Any Human Heart"

Any Human Heart, author William Boyd, attended Aye Write! in Scotland and answered some questions including the following:

Six hours, he revealed, was also the transmission time of this year’s television adaptation of his last big novel, Any Human Heart, which is about to begin shooting and will screen in the autumn. Three actors will play the protagonist Logan Mountstuart: Jim Broadbent, Matthew MacFadyen and a younger man yet to be cast. Gasps of approval greeted the first two names, so the writer’s insistence that his screenplay is viewed as a “vivacious variant” of the much-loved book rather than a faithful adaptation was, perhaps, unnecessary.

Thank you Steph for letting me know!
