For Love or Money, Paperback / softback Book

Description

`Jonathan Raban is the only person I listen to in matters of travel and books and writing in general.

Reading him, talking to him as I have over fifty years, he has made my work better and me happier.' Paul Theroux`For Love and Money ... is as good a book as there is about the writing life.

Delighted that it will be safeguarded in print by Eland.' Tim HanniganThis collection of writing undertaken for love and money is about books and travel, and makes for an engrossing and candid exploration of what it means to live from writing.

Jonathan Raban weighs up the advantages of maintaining an independent spirit against problems of insolvency and self-worth, confesses to travel as an escape from the blank page, ponders the true art of the book review, admires the role of the literary editor and remembers with affection and hilarity events from his eccentric life at the heart of literary London.

Reading it is like embarking on a humane, rigorous and witty conversation.
