Life Being Famous
Inspiration for Books
By: Lily Bunnell
MarGo was HEre
All of his books one way or another share a connection with his real life experiences. A lot of the time he creates his characters to be something he either wants to be or has become. Like when he was in a school in Alabama, one of his classmates died, giving a little piece of darkness to some of his books.
He wrote almost all his books according to his location and the stories he had to tell along the way. The books
Fault in Our Stars
were written in Indianapolis. When he lived in New York he was inspired to write
An Abundance of Katherines
. Then in Chicago, he wrote
Looking for Alaska.
For the book
the city Algoe, New York is actually a true place. He wanted to bring back how Algoe is hidden and unknown to most people just like the characters in his book.
