Product description

Review

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)

Book Description

'Part biography, part collection of tips for the aspiring writer' Guardian. ON WRITING: A MEMOIR OF THE CRAFT is a brilliant book on writing from the number one bestselling writer.

NOTE:The black smudge on the cover of the book is a part of the design .
