David Cronenberg joins ranks of filmmaker-novelistsTo finish his first novel, David Cronenberg had to work around a few other projects, like the four movies he completed over the past eight years. Elia Kazan wrote several novels after his movie career faded, and Jean Renoir wrote a handful of short fiction works in the last years of his life.Film projects took up so much time while Sayles was writing "Los Gusanos" (1991), that when the writer-director returned to the novel, he realized he had scene with a dead man in the trunk of a car and he had forgotten why he was there.Cronenberg's book has so far been received with the kind of respect he had hoped for.In The New York Times, author Jonathan Lethem praised the novel for its "sturdy and direct" story line and "the fierce sculptural intensity" of its details.If his movie career ever permits, Cronenberg likes the idea of doing nothing but writing for a year or two.
