"The last chapter of this book is one of my favorite pieces of writing in the world. And the others are almost as great. You don't have to be a writer or even an aspiring one to find beauty and inspiration here. It's a little book that packs a big punch, one that will leave you reeling for days. In a good way, I promise."
With color, irony and sensitivity, Pulitzer prize-winner Annie Dillard illuminates the dedication absurdity, and daring that is the writer's life. As it probes and exposes, examines and analyzes, The Writing Life offers deeper insight into one of the most mysterious of professions.
