A Memoir of the Craft: Twentieth Anniversary Edition with Contributions from Joe Hill and Owen Kingav Stephen King121
Twentieth Anniversary Edition with Contributions from Joe Hill and Owen King Immensely helpful and illuminating to any aspiring writer, this special edition of Stephen King's critically lauded, million-copy bestseller shares the experiences, habits, and convictions that have shaped him and his work. Part memoir, part masterclass 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 his 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. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it - fans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.

En läsvärd bok om hur Stephen King formades till den författare han är. Skrivtipsen som han ger är bra och konkreta men hade inte så mycket djup i sig.

Part biography, part collection of tips for the aspiring writer . . . one of the great storytellers of our time * Guardian * Absolutely fascinating . . . basic instructions . . . sensible advice * <i>The Sunday Times</i> * 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 * <i>Evening Standard</i> * 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 * <i>The Times</i> * 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 </i>We Love This Book</i> *

King was the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.
