(Note to self: Why do I insist on putting it in capital letters, giving it far more importance than it deserves?) Putting anything at all on the page, no matter how uninspired it seems, can be the impetus to get past the block. If you keep going, you will eventually arrive at a more inspired place. Being excited about what you're working on is usually the best way to avoid it altogether, however, so make sure you have several projects on the go at once. That way you can pick and choose whatever makes your mind catch fire. Barring any of that, get out of your milieu and wait for something to happen. Travel is a sure way to find fresh inspiration.(less)

Utterly moving and exquisitely written -- I can't name a better memoir. This account of the end of a love affair in the mid-80s to AIDS will always have a place of honour on my shelves.

A young man escapes from prison after a botched drug deal, hoping to right a few wrongs and get back the girl he left behind. Fraught, taut and gripping right to the end, this book is masterfully written.
