"I love Faulkner," Franco told The Hollywood Reporter in 2015. "I have loved Faulkner since I was a teenager, and I have just been drawn to his characters and his worlds. I think his experimental style and his very unusual structuring in his novels is the thing that actually attracted me. I knew it would be very difficult but I also knew from adapting his other book [ As I Lay Dying ] that if I tried to take on that writing style and structure in the movie that it would push me to find filmmaking solutions that I wouldn't have otherwise."
I recently read the Paris wife by Paula MacLaine about Hemingway and his first wife in Paris (and subsequent break up of that marriage ) then I read a moveable feast which is hemingways account of that time. There's a really moving passage about his affair and hadleys innocence from the whole thing which starts ' the bulldozing of three people's hearts to destroy one happiness and build another ...' He talks about his wife's subsequent happiness and marriage to another man as 'the one good thing that came out of that year '
Not very well rephrased by me but its an honest account of an affair and its impact
