Description:New. Tight binding with clean text. Fine First edition. Cover...New. Tight binding with clean text. Fine First edition. Cover has slight wear along edges. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 272 p. Audience: General/trade. The author of five books, including the novels Hard Laughter, Rosie and Joe Jones, offers an "inspiring book about writing as a way of finding truth" (San Francisco Chronicle). "A reveille to get off our duffs and start writing now, while we still can". --Seattle Times.
All the information that young writers need to hear is packed into this one, short, enormously witty book! Anne Lamott delivers much-needed advice, practice, and motivation to beginning writers, bored writers, depressed writers, uninterested writers (and pretty much every other kind too!) in a way ...
My suggestion: read Traveling Mercies first, so that you can know who Anne Lamott is. But even if you don't, this is a very good book about writing. She tells you how to do it...by suggestions and of course, by EXAMPLE...her own!
