Writers’ rooms

The Guardian has a great series on the rooms writers work in. The one above is where Hanif Kureishi does his stuff:

I usually work in the morning, I try to start around seven and work until around midday and then I do other things. I’ve got several typewriters but you can’t get the ribbons. Computers are a mercy for writers, but they do encourage books that are too long. I write by hand first and then type it up. Writing with a fountain pen is a real pleasure and many writers are pen queens – you’d be surprised at how some of the toughest guys can’t wait to tell you about their new Mont Blanc.

A fountain pen? Whatever floats your boat, dude. You can have my PC when you pry my cold dead fingers from the keyboard.
