About this product
- DescriptionThe biography of J.K. Rowling, the author of possibly the best-loved character in contemporary fantasy fiction. The book uncovers the quiet, dreamy, rather shy Joanne Rowling behind the hype: the author who created her own escape from the brink of poverty.
- Author BiographySean Smith has contacts with a number of J.K. Rowling's friends and former classmates, and much of the book will be based on exclusive interviews with these and others who knew her. A former national newspaper columnist and now a freelance writer, his books include the international bestseller Sophie's Kiss, a biography of Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones.

Well written but dated now, written in 2001.
Much speculation and reliance on people from J K Rowlings past,ie people who knew her but not intimately,therefore not necessarily accurate although conclusions drawn seem to be unbiased. Unfortunately written too early to cover the later developement of her stories and the characters in them. I bought it as J K Rowling has not produced her own autobiography and i was curious to find out more about her past and the background which has lead to her success. Until she decides to reveal her tale herself it's probably a limited and unbiased an account as is available. AJB.
