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

As close to an autobiography as Stephen King has yet written and a brilliant guide for the aspiring writer, selected by both Val McDermid and Jeremy Vine as one of their top books.
