(6 Audio Cassettes/8 Hrs.) Responsible for more nightmares than the bogeyman, Stephen King has earned his reputation as the master of horror with more than 30 international best-sellers. On Writing shines with his enthusiasm for his craft and provides insightful lessons for writers. First serialized in the New Yorker, this engaging memoir has met with eager acclaim. King's advice is friendly and to the point: acquire and hone the tools necessary for good writing, let your characters reveal the story, and dare to get started. With warmth and wit he tells the story of his colorful childhood, his collection of rejection slips in adolescence, and the struggling years that led to his first major publishing success. Finally, he talks about the accident that nearly killed him and the writing that helped him get his life back. Fans, serious writers, and listeners who enjoy the sound of a good book will find On Writing both inspiring and entertaining. Narrating the book himself, Stephen King engages listeners with his friendly, conversational style and exercises his world-famous flair for holding them spellbound until the very last word.

I got to know Stephen King on a personal level by reading this short novel. I learned how he made his first buck and I felt like we connected even though we never really personally met.
