Kate Grenville, Searching for the Secret River, Melbourne: Text Publishing Company, 2006.
My rating: ***
In this book the Australian writer Kate Grenville explains the process – both in terms of research and creative composition – that she went through in the writing of her award winning novel The Secret River.
I am always interested in the mechanics of how writers actually produce their work and this makes for a fascinating read. It shows that writing is by no means a breezily easy process.
