Description

Book connoisseur Tom Nissley has combed literary history to capture the stories that make writers' lives perennially fascinating: their epiphanies, embarrassments and achievements. Each handsome page in A Reader's Book of Days is devoted to a day of the year, featuring original accounts of events in the lives of great writers (Proust starting In Search of Lost Time, Conrad defending the crew of the Titanic) and fictional events that took place within beloved books (the birth of Harry Potter's enemy Draco Malfoy, the blood-soaked prom in Stephen King's Carrie).
