While we're on the subject of Cain, here's an excellent interview he did for the Paris Review in 1978.

It includes the following snippet, which I've heard pretty much verbatim from another author (anybody else?):
"I just don't like movies. People tell me, don't you care what they've done to your book? I tell them, they haven't done anything to my book. It's right there on the shelf."
