Book Description

22 Mar 2010
Following the success of his first novel The Marriage of Reason and Squalor, artist Jake Chapman now focuses his malice on the calloused underbelly of literature itself. In Memoirs of MyWriters Block, Chapman haunts the shady world of the professional ghostwriter, posing as fragile amateur scribbler Christabel Ludd whose broken attempts at completing her first novel are frustrated by an unshakable writers block. In desperation she commissions a ragged collection of self-proclaimed professionals to transform the rudimentary tale into a compelling page-turner with breathtaking results. The book follows the crushing and often bizarre process of having to get your novel written by someone else. The author, wracked with creative energy, resorts to poetry in a desperate attempt to relieve the tension built up over months of waiting for other apparently more accomplished writers to finish her story.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An art-work slumming it as a novel...This funny and clever book is more about the processes of writing and a critique of the UK writing and publishing market and its formulaic and braying reliance on previous successful sellers rather than true literary value. It doesn't just turn a dirty mirror onto the over-stuffed bourgeoise UK fiction industry as much as breaks it and stabs it in the face with the shards...you should all admire the beautiful and funny reflections it produces but remember, its only fiction...or is it?...
