The Man Who Would Be King (1888) is a short story by Rudyard Kipling. It is about two British adventurers in British India who become kings of Kafiristan, a remote part of Afghanistan. It’s also a movie starring Sean Connery and Michael Caine. We decided to watch the movie even though reading the short story would have been quicker. We’re strange in that way.
