Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

Scribe Publications, 2008 - 238 Seiten
'Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, 'Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.' Here, for the first time, is a local edition of the bible of writing guides - a wry, honest, down-to-earth book that has never stopped selling since it was first published in the United States in the 1990s. In Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott, a bestselling novelist and memoirist, distils what she's learned over years of trial and error. Beautifully written, wise, and immensely helpful, this is the book for serious writers and writers-to-be.

Anne Lamott brings on the inspiration and encouragement in this well-known writing guide. There’s useful advice here, but there is also a lot of Lamott herself in the text, so how you feel about the book will depend on how much you enjoy spending time with the author. Vollständige Rezension lesen
