On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft/King, Stephen/Paper/0340820462/S016-E
New English Library
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.
"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 detail, the story of his recent accident...a bizarre and absorbing story, told brilliantly by one of the great storytellers of our time." - Guardian.
