The Author of Beltraffio is a short story by Henry James, first published in the English Illustrated Magazine in 1884. This macabre account of desperate family infighting eventually leads to a tragic... More > conclusion. Although the father in the story is a novelist, the tale concentrates far more on his family relationships than on his special concerns as a writer, though some of those concerns affect the outcome.The narrator of the story, a somewhat naive American admirer of English novelist Mark Ambient, visits the writer at his home in Surrey. The narrator is very enthusiastic about Ambient's work, especially his latest novel Beltraffio. He meets Ambient's beautiful but chilly wife, his sickly seven-year-old son Dolcino, and his strange sister Gwendolyn.

The dark side of the publishing world and nearly all the mistakes a writer could possibly make--is the subject of this literary and publishing memoir by an Indian with an American Dream. He lands up... More > in New York and "writes" for a literary agency, until he realizes that it's a scam exploiting innocent American and Canadian writers. He earns an MFA at Columbia University, attends numerous workshops and conferences including Breadloaf and Aspen, meets Tim O'Brien, John Irving, and Saul Bellow's agent, whereupon his career takes off . . . well, almost. Until the long nightmare begins. Gritty, unsparing, honest, and at times laugh-out-loud. This book could teach you to avoid dozens of mistakes even one of which could cost a thousand times the price of this book. “Crasta has a sense of humour which he maintains from the start to the end." --The Deccan Chronicle More information at: http://www.richardcrasta.com and http://crasta.typepad.com< Less
