The Truth About Lisa Jewell

£16.99

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. . .
