In 1907 Kipling became the first English writer to win the Nobel Prize for literature. A poet and prolific short story writer, he is best known as the author of The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1902), and Just So Stories (1902).

Roger Avary is the writer-director of the neo-noir crime thriller Killing Zoe and the filmed adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel The Rules of Attraction.
