Terrific stuff. Reading Shapiro's memoir/meditation on the writing life felt like spending a few days with someone who truly understands what the writer is trying to do, trying to survive, trying to break through... in short, what goes on in my head as I sit in my office, surrounded by scraps of paper attempting to make sense of life's mess. Affirming and inspiring for any writer.
