The Ghost Writer
By Robert Harris
Why this book?
All Robert Harris’s books are good, and many of them are huge bestsellers. This one is a particularly tightly written thriller. It accurately depicts the world of ghostwriters, and how their relationships with their famous clients work. It was later made into a movie by Roman Polanski, with Ewan McGregor as the ghostwriter and Pierce Brosnan as his ex-prime minister client, raising the profile of the ghostwriting business even further. I loved that he quoted my Ghostwriting book at the start of each chapter.
