On Writing

A Memoir of the Craft

Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer´s craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King´s advice is grounded in the vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999 - and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery.

There is a reason why Stephen King is one of the bestselling writers in the world, ever. Described in the Guardian as ´the most remarkable storyteller in modern American literature´, Stephen King writes books that draw you in and are impossible to put down

Portrait
Stephen King has been described by the Guardian as ´one of the greatest storytellers of our time´, by the Mirror as a ´genius´ and by The Sunday Times as ´one of the most fertile storytellers of the modern novel.´ In 2003, he was given the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives with his wife, the novelist Tabitha King, for most of the year in Maine, USA.
Zitat
Absolutely fascinating ... basic instructions ... sensible advice -- The Sunday Times The childhood memoir is a triumphant display of wit, story-telling and guts. His advice to writers is hard-nosed, practical and level-headed in the classic journalistic Orwell-Hemingway tradition -- Evening Standard This is the written equivalent of Delia Smith's How To Cook. And, like British home cooking, the world of popular fiction will be better off for it -- The Times Stephen King is a genius ... In this book he tells us what first made him a horror writer ... I find King fascinating because he writes in the least florid way possible, yet his very direct approach to getting his awesome imagination onto a blank page works. -- Jeremy Vine in We Love This Book
