Writing Is a TicHow Writers Write
Spain (Ariel - Spanish rights now available)
A guided through the desks, homes, and daily habits of the best known and loved writers on the contemporary international literary scene. From Italo Calvino to Bruce Chatwin, from Gabriel García Márquez to Isabel Allende, from Ernest Hemingway to Don DeLillo: in a little over a hundred pages, Writing Is a Tic investigates, analyzes, and compares the writing methods of the most celebrated authors of the twentieth century. Craft and discipline, rewriting, work space, and small daily rituals, obsessions and superstitions, readings, dead time, money, advice. A complete catalogue of writing and writers, a guidebook that will capture your imagination, whet your curiosity, amuse you, and even make you laugh.
Over the years, this book has come to be considered a minor classic in the field of books about creative writing; it was the very first title ever published by minimum fax, and it has been constantly in prints for fifteen years.
