What are the differences between the PG cut and the uncensored cut?
What is "The Ghost Writer" about? Was this review helpful to you? Ghosting a book for someone is like being paid to be educated by the best teachers in the world. Imagine being paid to learn everything that is in the heads of these people and then turning their thoughts, words and notes into book form. Could there be a better form of education? Of course, not all people who use ghost writers are going to create books of such lasting value. But suppose one of your specialist areas is information technology.
If you get invited to ghost for one of the most famous innovators in the business you will be able to ask questions about the future and learn things at his or her knee which other people would have to pay good money for in the form of consultancy or seminar fees.
Zana Muhsen, who had escaped back to England after her father had sold her as a child bride in the Yemen, went to her local library to find out about ghost writers. The librarian obligingly looked me up in The Bookseller. Having been to see her and heard her story I wrote a synopsis and sample chapter of Sold and found an agent to represent it. The book eventually translated into every possible language and has so far sold over three million copies and spawned a sequel. To get her story on tape Zana and I spent three days together in a hotel suite in Birmingham and I then spent between two and three months writing.
As with all the authors I ghost for, Zana had complete control over the text, nothing would even be shown to the agent until she had okayed it, but she changed almost nothing. Always having one good agent representing both parties in the arrangement, whose prime interest is in getting the book well published, not in encouraging the ghost and the author to fight one another for larger shares of the resulting royalties, means that I have almost never exchanged a cross word with any of my subjects.
Being a ghost is a matter of suppressing your own ego completely, which is a good discipline for any writer. I listen to their story and then tell it for them, helping to get across their view of the world and the way things happen in it.
She then exploited her position by selling her story to the media. She needed a ghost who would not challenge her about the morality of what she had done, but would simply listen to what she had to say and understand how she justified her position to herself. Had she been able to write the book herself that is what she would have wanted to say. If the writer wishes to be critical of the subject then they must step back and create an objective biography, not an autobiography.
If they have nothing to say that you want to hear the project will become unbearable. Imagine spending that much time talking to someone who bores you, and then having to go away and write it out all over again. I always judge a project by whether I think it interests me at more than one level.
Had Gillian Taylforth merely been a soap actress telling anecdotes about other Eastenders actors I doubt if I could have created a whole book for her. On top of that she had had the courage to take on the might of the News International organisation in court and, even more amazingly, she had lost the case and faced personal financial ruin and ridicule everywhere she went.
Despite all this she remained a resolutely charming and funny woman with a strong family all around her. It had the makings of a Greek tragedy and worked at so many different levels it was easy to find enough material.
The same applied to Sold by Zana Muhsen. Not only did it give an insight into the alien culture of a peasant girl in the Yemen, there was the adventure element of whether she and her sister would be able to escape and the insights which she could give into the way the diplomatic world allowed them to become victims of political expediency.
It was one of the first books to talk about life behind the veil from the point of view of someone who had experienced it and it was all told in the voice of a straight talking Birmingham girl.
It was like a true version of an Arabian Knights tale and a nightmare that any young girl can understand. On top of that there was the emotional story of how she fell in love with the young gorillas against a background of her relationship with her husband, who was working with her, the civil war which was brewing up and the terrible tropical diseases which practically killed them both.
It provided the escapism of a great travel story mixed with a personal odyssey and an insight into the fascinating world of gorillas. In Through Gypsy Eyes , which I ghosted for Kathy Etchingham, there was the superficial story of her relationship with Jimi Hendrix, but behind that was a story of a young girl who ran away from home at fifteen and ended up at the heart of the music industry in London during the Swinging Sixties.
Again it was a Greek tragedy filled with great heroes being brought down and gave an insight into where the giant rock music industry of today started.
