Reviews

PRAISE FOR READING, WRITING, AND LEAVING HOME

To the tiny list of necessary books for people who aspire to the writing life--Mystery and Manners, by Flannery O'Connor, and One Writer's Beginnings, by Eudora Welty--must now be added Reading, Writing, and Leaving Home.--The Washington Post Book World

Something for every writer, published or aspiring, to befriend over a period of years, a generous source of heat, heart, energy and consolation . . . What becomes clear from this powerful little book is that Lynn Freed truly does inspire.--San Francisco Chronicle
