📙 On Writing: A Memoir Of The Craft by Stephen King — epub download


This isn't the worst book on writing that I've read, but it's not even close to the best (which is John Gardner's "The Art of Fiction.") The problems start with the title, "A Memoir of The Craft." The memoir section will be of interest only to King fans and of no interest to anyone else. There is far too much content devoted to Tabby (Mrs. King) and to pointless details that have no bearing on anything, e.g. "we were traveling to a WNBA game between Cleveland and..."[who cares!!]and are quite typical of King's blow-hard style here and elsewhere. The writing suggestions are okay but not new and not particularly insightful. King cites an editor who called an early story of his "too puffy." That's a bulls-eye review of this book as well: too much puff, not enough stuff. (He also mentions TWICE that he ended his relationship with Viking because of stupid argument about money. The same point repeated in IDENTICAL language. I'm looking at you Mr. or Ms. Editor!
