Synopses & Reviews
Before 1997 few people knew the brilliant woman behind J. K. Rowling and her phenomenally successful Harry Potter books. Few yet know the real story of Ms. Rowlings childhood and career as a writer. Conversations with J. K. Rowling is the first and only true telling of Ms. Rowlings history because it is in her own words: From her birth in Chipping Sodbury near Bristol, England; to the stories about her favorite (and least favorite) teachers in school growing up; and to the funny misunderstanding in her first fan letter. Reading her story is like a visit with a friend, a friend who has brought you to tears with laughter and told you the most enchanting stories youve ever heard.
"[H]ighly accessible....Excerpts from [Rowlin's] interviews with Oprah, Newsweek, and Larry King, among others, are...included, along with brief plot descriptions of books one through four." Publishers Weekly
