I've loved books about writers for as long as I've been a reader and that's probably why I couldn't resist putting a writer into my first novel Everyone Is Still Alive. Here is a list of some of my favourite novels about writers. It is not definitive or exhaustive and these are all books I have read and would heartily recommend. Thanks to everyone who brainstormed it with me on twitter. I'll add to it as I read through some of your other recommendations.
