Staff Reviews


If you’re a writer and you write anywhere close to the way I write, the writing process doesn’t feel very zen—or those zen moments of pure inspiration where the pen seems to move itself are few and far between. So often, many words feel clunky, I keep a timer going to clock my writing time, and I feel a sense of relief when I stop and get to go make some coffee. On the more difficult days, this book of essays by the author of Fahrenheit 451 brings me back to why I’m writing in the first place. All of the essays are short enough to read in a small period of time, and they all feel like a conversation with a friend about this whole writing thing and all the joys and frustrations that come with it.
