Mark Haddon on text book murder

Mark Haddon, author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, has said the novel, which has been described as a 'text book' for those who care for children with social difficulties, is now independent of his care.

Niamh Cusack, who stars in the adaptation of the novel at the Apollo Theatre, says the play is part of a ripple effect begun by Haddon's work 10 years ago.
