Inhaltsangabe

In June of 1999, Stephen King was hit by a van while walking along the shoulder of a country road in Maine. Six operations were required to save his life and mend his broken body. When he was finally able to sit up, he immediately started writing. This book is the extraordinary result.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

"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.... It is part biography, part collection of tips for the aspiring writer. In the final chapters, King tells, in graphic details, the story of his recent accident...a bizarre and absorbing story, told brilliantly by one of the great storytellers of our time." (Guardian)

On writing

It's the best 8 hours I had this summer. Or, maybe even this year. Thanks!

The memoir's insight kept me reading it throughout

Frankness. He says 'interesting' multiple times. That made me remember how to pronounce 'interesting' as one of our family friends used to pronounce it. I thought he mispronounced the word. But Stephen King repeats this pronunciation, and now I know it is right. I like how the author brings in his family, and especially his wife Tabby on assisting and encouraging Stephen King in his writer's life. He encourages writers like me (considered a fledgling) to write if the urge of writing is true to one's life. I must read one of his work.

a personal King's speech for writers

A personal and encouraging straightforward and from the heart 'teaching memoire' by a remarkable author. I needed to get used to his somewhat monotonous reading, but the content made me forget this lack of colour. Thankyou
