Writer McLarty Scores After Years in Basement
Link - I wanted to read The Memory of Running after reading about the book in Bookmarks. But now I think maybe reading a biography about the author might be just as entertaining. His tale about going to a therapist to try to stop writing is hilarious. (It could be a great movie too - or at the very least a great Larry David Show episode!) And his run-in with Stephen King (and King's assistance later) shows how much of success is out of our hands and completely random.
