Bury My Heart at W.H. Smith's

(1990)
A Writing Life
A non fiction book by

 
 
In this fascinating account of the life of a writer, Brian Aldiss reveals with wit and candour his adventures with publishers, booksellers, agents, fellow authors and readers. He shares wry, witty and informative tales, beginning with his first job at the Oxford bookshop that inspired his debut novel, The Brightfount Diaries; and ending with what is without a doubt the most gruelling experience for a writer - having a new novel published (Forgotten Life). Aldiss illustrates with inimitable style what makes and sustains a successful modern writer, and how a writer's life can be thrilling, unpredictable, routine and lonely all in the same day.
