    Give Salman the props for persistence against the odds, though: he got Bono to knock up some choons out of his dreadful fictional lyrics in his 'The ground beneath Her Feet' novel a few years back... sure there are other things like this lurking about, too, because loads of his generation of novelists/poets were earning a crust in ad agencies over the late 60s/70s: anyone know of any more?

        Well, there are all those movie directors: Alan Parker, Tony Scott, Ridley Scott, Hugh Hudson, David Puttnam...

        Oh and Salman also wrote the tagline for the fresh cream ads: &quot;Naughty, but nice&quot;.

            ...&amp; Fay Weldon is reputed to have done 'Go To Work on An Egg'. Can't remember who, but 'Drinka Pinta Milka Day' is supposed to by a literary grand fromage, too...
