Product description

Review

Absolutely fascinating (Sunday Times)

Not since Dickens has a writer had so many readers by the throat...King's imagination is vast. He knows how to engage the deepest sympathies of his readers...a bizarre and absorbing story, told brilliantly by one of the great storytellers of our time (Guardian)

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)

Energetic, vivid and observant (Daily Telegraph)

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)

Book Description

At last...the Number 1 bestselling writer offers a unique insight into his life and work as well as inspiring advice and instruction on writing.
