On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Stephen King

Nice First Edition hardcover, pages are clean crisp, binding tight. Cover boards 1/4 black cloth, cream boards, gilt lettering fine, in a fine dust jacket. Pristine, book appears to be unread --In 1999, Stephen King began to write about his craft -- and his life. By midyear, a widely reported accident jeopardized the survival of both. And in his months of recovery, the link between writing and living became more crucial than ever. Serialized in the New Yorker to vivid acclaim, On Writing culminates with a profoundly moving account of how King's overwhelming need to write spurred him toward recovery, and brought him back to his life. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower -- and entertain -- everyone who reads it
