Summary

Pocas veces un libro sobre el oficio de escribir ha resultado tan clarificador, útil y revelador.

Cuando Stephen King se decidió a escribir sobre su profesión y su vida, un brutal accidente automovilístico puso ambas en riesgo. Durante su convalecencia, el novelista descubrió los vínculos cada vez más fuertes entre la escritura y la vida. Y el resultado es este extraordinario libro, que es al mismo tiempo un ensayo sobre creación literaria y un relato autobiográfico.

Mientras escribo comienza con la asombrosa infancia de Stephen King y su extraño y temprano interés por la escritura que lo llevaron a la culminación de su primera novela, Carrie. A continuación, King describe las herramientas básicas del oficio y expone sus opiniones personales sobre los secretos de la escritura. Mientras escribo culmina con el conmovedor relato de cómo su necesidad de escribir lo ayudó a recuperarse de su casi fatal accidente.

Una vez más Stephen King demuestra que es mucho más que un maestro del thriller: un gran escritor.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Twentieth Anniversary Edition with Contributions from Joe Hill and Owen King

ONE OF TIME MAGAZINE’S TOP 100 NONFICTION BOOKS OF ALL TIME

Immensely helpful and illuminating to any aspiring writer, this special edition of Stephen King’s critically lauded, million-copy bestseller shares the experiences, habits, and convictions that have shaped him and his work.

“Long live the King” hailed Entertainment Weekly upon publication of Stephen King’s On Writing. Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer’s craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King’s advice is grounded in his vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999—and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it—fans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.
