My FIrst Book
« Reply #1 on: Feb:23:2019 »

Author: J.K. Jerome, R.L. Stevenson, B. Harte, R. Haggard, R. Kipling, C. Doyle,M. Braddon /Genre: Horror

This is not a children's book, as may be supposed from the title, but a collection of essays first published in The Idler magazine, in which over twenty well-known authors write with characteristic style and humour of their experiences in writing their first book... and getting it published.

Authors include Jerome K. Jerome, R. L. Stevenson, Bret Harte, Rider Haggard, Rudyard Kipling, Conan Doyle and Mary Braddon. Full of charm, humor and pathos, this book is like a fireside chat with great writers of the past, as well as being a fascinating insight into the literary scene of the late 19th century.

The listener is warned that a few of the authors give away the ending of their book, especially when they were pressurized into changing it by the publisher.
