Book review: ‘On Writing’ by Stephen King

‘On Writing’ by Stephen King

Cult author Stephen King explains how he goes about writing his punchy prose.

Not being a great fan of fiction, I’ve only ever read one of King’s novels—Misery, which was excellent—but the advice he imparts applies mostly as well to any genre of writing.

A large proportion of this book is memoir, rather than writing tips, but King writes memoir as punchily as fiction, so it’s entertaining stuff.

A good read.
