By the Book: Tan Twan Eng, on Watching his Book Onscreen

As the movie adaptation of “The Garden of the Evening Mists” hits the cinemas, we speak with the book’s multiple award-winning author Tan Twan Eng - about the book’s journey to the screen, what it feels like to see his characters take a life of their own, and how his story has changed in the process. We wrap things up with a discussion on book characters with a strong sense of “interiority”, and how they translate onto film.
