I felt like doing a post on the writers I am currently enthralled by, and I thought it would be fascinating to get a glimpse of the rooms where they produce their magic. A personal view of the rooms, where they write.
Paul Theroux’s room has lovely art work, but looks pretty messy to me. From his books it seems that he does the most writing on his train journeys. I wish I had a fraction of his diligence.
V S Naipaul’s room is shockingly sparse and looks very much like the study area of a teenager. It looks like this genius doesn’t need much to produce fine work.
Charlotte Bronte, author of Jane Eyre in a writing parlour where she discussed writing with her famous sisters.
Peter Mayle’s Study published in Life Magazine.
I found Kurt Vonnegut’s room’s the most interesting and quirky. I love that he uses an old-fashioned typewriter and sits on that sunny chair.
