Memento Mori
by Jonathan Nolan

In 1996, while driving from Chicago to Los Angeles, Jonathan Nolan, then a college student, described the base concept of a short story he was writing to his brother Christopher, an emerging director. Enthusiastic about the idea, Christopher commenced adapting it into a screenplay while Jonathan continued writing the story. They developed their respective works simultaneously, exchanging drafts as they progressed. Christopher’s resulting film, Memento, was released in 2000 and earned both brothers Academy Award nominations for best screenplay.

This story is available only in the print edition of the Spring 2010 issue. Please purchase a copy from our online store.
