This is a writers' journal, though, not a memoir. It offers encouragement, advice, and words of caution. If Kennedy impresses on her readers...that writing is rather hard, she will have done a great service.

Synopsis

At the core of 'On Writing' is the hugely popular blog that A.L. Kennedy writes for the Guardian and we follow her during a 3-year period when she finished one collection of stories and started another, and wrote a novel in between. Readers and aspiring writers will have almost everything they need to know about the complexities of researching, writing and publishing fiction, but they will be receiving this wisdom conversationally, from one of the funniest and most alert of our contemporary authors.
