«This is the written equivalent of Delia Smith's <i>How To Cook</i>. And, like British home cooking, the world of popular fiction will be better off for it»

<i>The Times</i>

«Stephen King is a genius . . . In this book he tells us what first made him a horror writer . . . I find King fascinating because he writes in the least florid way possible, yet his very direct approach to getting his awesome imagination onto a blank page works.»

Jeremy Vine in </i>We Love This Book</i>

«The childhood memoir is a triumphant display of wit, story-telling and guts. His advice to writers is hard-nosed, practical and level-headed in the classic journalistic Orwell-Hemingway tradition»

<i>Evening Standard</i>

«Absolutely fascinating . . . basic instructions . . . sensible advice»

<i>The Sunday Times</i>

«Part biography, part collection of tips for the aspiring writer . . . one of the great storytellers of our time»
