Dan mention in the Telegraph

Alan Hollinghurst and Philip Hensher have been featured in the Telegraph's "Ways With Words". The following is what Hollinghurst had to say about the television adaptation of The Line of Beauty, in which Dan stars as Nick Guest:

I think I was quite sensible about having my book filmed [The Line of Beauty was dramatised by Andrew Davies for the BBC in 2006, starring Dan Stevens]. I knew it was going to turn into something different. In The Line of Beauty there are things that I don’t tell, big gaps between the three sections. A film needs greater narrative clarity so some things that I had left deliberately unsaid had to be dramatised. I read the script of all three parts and made some comments on them which were sometimes listened to. Andrew Davies said to me quite candidly that he preferred his authors dead. But there were compensations and wonderful performances. A good actor like Dan Stevens can do something with an expression that it would take me a paragraph to explain.
