4.0 out of 5 stars Some valuable lessons to be learned, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How To Be A Literary Genius (Kindle Edition)
Anna Bright's journey to becoming a literary genius is a circuitous and unlikely one. For a start, she hasn't actually written a book, and her perfect lover has little confidence that she ever will. She is persuaded by a successful writer friend to join a local writing group, where she feels inadequate and is patronised by the other members who are either neurotic or completely bonkers.

Her job is unsatisfying and on the rocks; her perfect lover may not be quite as perfect as he seems, and then there's a dangerous but devilishly irresistible acclaimed writer and Phyllis, an anorexic dotty American future-mother-in-law.

From the leafy London suburbs to the glaring brightness of a Greek island, Anna struggles with the shenanigans of Phyllis, her own lack of confidence, and uncertainty about her future marriage, while doggedly ploughing on with her book about Modigliani's muse. It could bring her international recognition.

The book captures very well the world of publishing and media, and the author has created a believable character in Anna. Anybody hoping to become a literary genius could learn a thing or two from this.

A jolly good read!
