Given shape and coherence by his son, Dominic, that work has now become Liar's Landscape, a book about books, about writing and writers, about being a writer and, of course, about being Malcolm Bradbury. With an introduction by Dominic Bradbury and afterword by David Lodge, Liar's Landscape takes the reader from unfinished novel to unsent letters, from prose to play, from Macclesfield to the New York's Honours List. The definitive writer's guide to writing, it is evidence of the late great author's versatility, wit - and, of course, passion for the written word."--BOOK JACKET." ;
