The Truth About Lisa Jewell

The Truth About Lisa Jewell

By Will Brooker



*For those aspiring authors who are interested in the path to success* 'I read this yesterday in one glorious sitting! What an absolute treat of a book!' Lesley Kara 'Illuminating, revealing and absolutely fascinating, Will Brooker offers us the keys to the Jewell kingdom.' Vanessa Fox O'Loughlin aka Sam Blake __________ Have you ever thought about what it takes to become a bestselling writer? If so, The Truth About Lisa Jewell is the book for you. It is the story of how a novel is written, from before the start to after the finish; it's an in-depth analysis of how that novel fits into a bestselling author like Lisa Jewell's career and her previous work, and what her style shares with authors from James Joyce to Martin Amis. But this is more than just a study of an author at the top of her game. Like Lisa Jewell's much-loved novels, it's also the story of a relationship - between the bestselling author and the professor of cultural studies who has made her his muse - evolving slowly as the world comes gradually out of Covid. It's the story of two very different writers getting to know each other gradually through words; two complete strangers becoming something more like friends. A must-have for fans of Lisa Jewell, for aspiring authors who are interested in the path to success - and a testament to the way books can bring us together. . . __________ Readers LOVE The Truth About Lisa Jewell . . . ***** 'This book is perfect for fans and aspiring writers alike ... It's faultless to the point that I'd say it's a must read for anyone interested in Lisa Jewell or her work.' ***** 'An insightful and well written book.' ***** 'Brooker ... succeeds in being a great guide to [Lisa Jewell's] progression.'
