Product description

Review

" A one-of-a-kind classic. "

-- "Wall Street Journal "

" This is a special book, animated by a unique intelligence, and filled with useful truth. "

-- "Michael Chabon"

"On Writing had more useful and observant things to say about the craft than any book since Strunk and White's The Elements of Style. "

-- "Roger Ebert"

"The best book on writing. Ever. "

-- "Cleveland Plain Dealer"

"Tthis combination of memoir and masterclass by fiction's most successful modern storyteller showcases the blunt, casual brilliance of King at his best. As well as being genuinely useful, it's a fascinating chronicle of literary persistence and of a lifelong love affair with language and narrative."

-- "The Guardian (London)"

"With examples that reach from T. S. Eliot to pulp fiction, there's much trenchant material here on how to construct a story, how to revise, and how to go about building a career...This is unmistakably King: friendly, sharply perceptive, cheerfully vulgar, sometimes adolescent in his humor, sometimes impatient with fools, but always sincere in his love of language and writing. "

-- "Kirkus Reviews" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
