Making an Elephant: Writing from Within (Vintage International) by Graham Swift

In his first-ever work of nonfiction, Graham Swift-Booker Prize-winning author ofWaterlandandLast Orders-gives us a highly personal book: a singular and open-spirited account of a writerrsquo;s life. Here Kazuo Ishiguro advises on how to choose a guitar; Salman Rushdie arrives for Christmas under guard; Caryl Phillips shares a beer with the author at a nightclub in Toronto. There are private moments with Swiftrsquo;s father and with his own younger self, as well as musings-on history, memory, and imagination-that illuminate his work. As generous in its scope as it is acute in its observations,Making an Elephantbrings together a richly varied selection of essays, portraits, poetry and interviews, full of insights into Swiftrsquo;s passions and motivations, and wise about the friends, family and other writers who have mattered to him over the years.
