On Writing

By King, Stephen

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft is an autobiography and writing guide by Stephen King, published in 2000. It is a book about the prolific author's experiences as a writer. Although he discusses several of his books, one doesn't need to have read them or even be familiar with them to read On Writing. In 2008, Entertainment Weekly listed On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft 21st on their list of The New Classics: Books - The 100 best reads from 1983 to 2008, making it King's only entry.
