Review quote

"For nonwriters, it is a glimpse into the tirals and satisfactions of a life spent with words. For writers, it is a warm, rambling, conversation with a stimulating and extraordinarily talented colleague.""--Chicago Tribune""A kind of spiritual Strunk & White, a small and brilliant guidebook to the landscape of a writer's task...Dillard brings the same passion and connective intelligence to this narrative as she has to her other work."-- "Boston Globe""For her book is...scattered with pearl. Each reader will be attracted to different bright parts...Gracefully and simply told, these little stories illuminate the writing life...Her advice to writers is encouraging and invigorating."-- "Cleveland Plain Dealer"""The Writing Life" is a spare volume...that has the power and force of a detonating bomb...A book bursting with metaphors and prose bristling with incident."-- "Detroit News"
