Reviews

There is no finer teacher of writing in America than Margot Livesey. The young writer who spends an hour with Livesey leaves with pockets filled with nuggets of her sly intuitions. To have an entire book of her wit, wisdom and constructive suggestions is to possess the mother lode.--James Magnuson, Director of the Michener Center for Writers and author of FAMOUS WRITERS I HAVE KNOWN
Novice novelists, accomplished authors, and rabid readers can all learn something from Livesey's intense yet intimate exploration of the art and craft of creating and appreciating the written word.--Booklist
Livesey writes with wisdom and insight about the craft of writing . . . Relying on famous authors makes a compelling strategy.--Publishers Weekly
