9 Novels Written in About a Month

1.The Gambler by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Buy it from Amazon
Dostoevsky wrote The Gambler in conjunction with his masterpiece Crime and Punishment.  At the time, he was in debt as a result of his gambling addiction and decided to quickly write this semi-autobiographical novella in order to alleviate financial woes.

2.On The Road by Jack Kerouac

Buy it from Amazon
Kerouac spent seven years on the road, travelling across America and taking notes the whole time.  Perhaps as a result of such preparation Kerouac was able to sit down and pen the entire novel in less than a month.  Interestingly, Kerouac typed the entire manuscript on one long, taped-together piece of teletype paper that was reportedly 120 feet long.

3.As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner

Buy it from Amazon
Faulkner wrote this formally inventive masterpiece in less than six weeks while working the night shift at a power plant.  Perhaps even more amazingly, he claims he didn’t change a single word.
