This collection of essays about making a living as a fiction writer had me laughing out loud and reading extended sections (when I could get them out without cracking up) to my critique group and long-suffering husband. Besides being a healthy dose of fun, these essays were practical and encouraging. I’m currently borrowing my copy from the library, but I may just get one of my own. Yes, it’s that good. If you’re a writer, or even if you just need a good laugh, you might want to check this book out.
