The Mammoth Book of Literary Anecdotes

The Mammoth Book of Literary Anecdotes Who Would Write Who Had Anything Better To Do Asked Lord Byron Rhetorically, And In This Amusing And Informative Anthology Author Philip Gooden Finds Hundreds Of Illuminating Anecdotes To Reveal What Writers Got Up To When They Were Not Sitting At The Typewriter Or Wielding Quill Pens Over 250 Stories Of Famous Writers Off Duty, From The Sixteenth Century To The Present Day, Are Featured Among The Forty Wide Ranging Sections, Covering Famous Writers From The Sixteenth Century To The Present Day, Are Writers And Money, Writers And Crime, Writers And Sex, Writers And Lost Typescripts, Writers And Alcohol, Writers And The Public, Writers And Inspiration, And Writers And Best Sellers. This book didn t really serve the purpose for what it was written Instead of being interesting and a source of humorous infotainment, this book was merely copied paragraphs from biographies and autobiographies with information that no one could care less If I were to end ma review here, I would blame myself of being biased So, yes, I concede I did like some very few entries that I found interesting and worth read
The Death and Last Words sections of this book were amazing The Love section was good too It s great to learn some of the interesting personal stories of favorite writers and the people who knew them best. I had great fun with this wonderful book It contains a wealth of recollections, essays, and quotes spanning five centuries Read this book if you are curious to learn something you perhaps don t already know about some of our favorite literary giants
