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.Rarely has a book on writing been so clear, so useful, and so revealing.

On Writing begins with a mesmerizing account of Kings childhood and his uncannily early focus on writing to tell a story. A series of vivid memories from adolescence, college, and the struggling years that led up to his first novel, Carrie, will afford readers a fresh and often very funny perspective on the formation of a writer. King next turns to the basic tools of his trade -- how to sharpen and multiply them through use, and how the writer must always have them close at hand. He takes the reader through crucial aspects of the writers art and life, offering practical and inspiring advice on everything from plot and character development to work habits and rejection.Serialized in the New Yorker to vivid acclaim, On Writing culminates with a profoundly moving account of how Kings overwhelming need to write spurred him toward recovery, and brought him back to his life.The subtitle to Stephen Kings On Writing, his missive on the art and craft that have made him rich and famous, is A Memoir of the Craft.

And thats just what this book is. Beginning with his earliest childhood, when his mother was struggling to raise Stephen and his older brother on her own, King takes readers through his life, culminating with the 1999 tragedy that almost ended it. Interspersed with Kings memories are details that highlight his burgeoning career, all of it told in Kings uniquely folksy but slightly twisted style.On Writing is both a textbook for writers and a memoir of Stephens life and will, thus, appeal even to those who are not aspiring writers.

If youve always wondered what led Steve to become a writer and how he came to be the success he is today, this will answer those questions.
