“There may be no more perilous subject matter for a novelist than the craft of writing. How do you dramatize the internal creative process? Well, it helps to be a superb writer and a top London literary agent. Conrad Williams’ “Unfinished Business” rivets as a fascinating intellectual duel between an idealistic agent and a brilliant yet dysfunctional writer. To create art, the two must overcome their emotional baggage, in particular the enigmatic beauty they both love. For literature lovers, this is an engrossing story reminiscent of John Irving’s “The World According to Garp.” For fiction writers, it’s an appreciation and a challenge.”
