The creative process can be a grueling grind — but for some unlucky authors, it has ultimately proven to be fatal. In this morbidly fascinating volume, author P. H. Ditchfield catalogs writers who didn't survive the birth of their beloved masterpiece, as well as others whose reputations were destroyed as a result of a particular publication. It makes for a grim — but totally engrossing — read.
