Hello experts,

I've got two different models and controllers. Lets call them Author
and Book respectively.  Also Author has_many :books, and Book
belong_to :author.

with this setup I get urls looking like

Is there a way to get rid of the 'book' controller name from the url?
I'd be more happy to see http://localhost:3000/author/14/173 instead.
