One of my absolutely favourite authors is Will Self - I'm loving reading The Book Of Dave at the moment. Picked it up on my way to Bangkok - haven't put it down since (except for once when it slipped out of my hand when I was struck by a tuk-tuk).
Will has a blog, bless him, and there I was thrilled to find 71 pictures of his writing room. I'm guessing they must have been taken while The Book Of Dave was in progress, judging from the maps of London with topographical tide marks in red felt tip pen on them.
And I was fascinated to discover the secret behind his method is actually not heroin, but post it notes.
