Rooms of Their Own: Where Great Writers Write


If writers face one question as often as “Where do you get your ideas?” it’s “Where do you write?” The answer: just about everywhere. This fascinating book takes you around the world to visit the places where 50 renowned scribes did their thing. You’ll find James Baldwin writing into the wee hours in his Paris apartment, the Brontë sisters sharing story ideas around the dining table, and Virginia Woolf’s all-important room of her own. You’ll also discover the routines and rituals that authors relied upon to jump-start inspiration—and motivation. Lavishly illustrated with watercolors that make each space come alive, this giftable volume is a treasure trove of insight into some of our best-loved authors and the craft of writing itself.
