The 'Writers on…' series is a collection of extracts, anecdotes, quotations and occasional philosophical musings from the world's most influential authors.  It celebrates writers who have an individual, creative outlook on the world; on subjects from 'drink' to 'death', and 'love' to 'libraries'.  Starting with ancient civilisations and moving towards the present day, this collection of intellectual and often humorous reflections provides a fascinating insight into a vast array of topics.  What all these issues have in common though, is that in some way they have all enthused, influenced, ensnared or concerned the greatest writers of the day.
