Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0952488116, Paperback)This book relates the inspiring stories of over thirty famous writers rejected by publishers at some point in their careers. Their accounts offer encouragement to anyone who thinks about writing for publication. A rebuffed manuscript that later goes on to achieve fame and success underscores the value of confidence and perseverance. Agatha Christie's first novel received some half dozen rejections and waited four years to emerge from the press. Charlotte Bronte's first novel never appeared in her lifetime. Uncle Tom's Cabin was deemed too controversial. Shaw was not interesting enough. Sherlock Holmes, first created in A Study in Scarlet, was unwanted. This book tells the fascinating stories of great authors who overcame the rejections of benighted publishers fortunately for English literature.
