Ten of the best novels about novelists

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best novels about novelists.

One book on the list:
Any Human Heart by William Boyd

Boyd's novel consists of the journals of Logan Mountstuart, a novelist whose inventiveness diminishes as he gives more and more of his energy to disastrous affairs and the cultivation of celebrities. Even as his own fiction dries up, he meets Joyce, Woolf, Hemingway and Waugh, and donates ideas for their novels to them.
