Author: Anne Lamott
Title: Bird By Bird
Rating: 4

Summary: Already a devoted Lamott fan, I found Bird by Bird a realistic, inspiring pep talk on writing and the life of a writer. Gathering all the things she tells students in her writing workshops, Lamott shares her insights on such writing issues as discipline, honesty, writer’s block, giving, publication, having a writing group, and more. And of course each insight comes laced with personal stories related in the author’s unmistakable, self–depricating and flat–out funny style.
