9780956356208: Jake Chapman: Memoirs of My Writer’s Block

Following tthe success of his first novel The Marriage of Reason and Squalor, Jake Chapman now focuses his malice on the calloused underbelly of literature itself. Fragile amateur novelist Christabel Ludd has a bad case of writer's block, and hires self-proclaimed “professionals” to transform her novel into a page-turner: they do so, spinning the tale of Bao Xishun, who saves the lives of some dolphins by using his extremely long arms to fish pieces of plastic flotsam from their stomachs. Working this tale into ever more bizarre incarnations, they finally cause Christabel to despairingly resort to poetry in order to break her block.

Book Description Fuel Publishing, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Following the success of his first novel The Marriage of Reason and Squalor , artist Jake Chapman now focuses his malice on the calloused underbelly of literature itself. In Memoirs of My Writers Block , Chapman haunts the shady world of the professional ghostwriter, posing as fragile amateur scribbler Christabel Ludd whose broken attempts at completing her first novel are frustrated by an unshakable writers block. In desperation she commissions a ragged collection of self-proclaimed professionals to transform the rudimentary tale into a compelling page-turner with breathtaking results. The book follows the crushing and often bizarre process of having to get your novel written by someone else. The author, wracked with creative energy, resorts to poetry in a desperate attempt to relieve the tension built up over months of waiting for other apparently more accomplished writers to finish her story.
