Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Lif&hellip von Anne Lamott

4.0 von 5 Sternen Listen to your broccoli, 4. Juni 2000
I've read a number of other books on this subject, and none of them comes close to this one in wit and enlightenment. Not that I profess to be a writer, but I do believe that it is one of the hardest, lonliest, and most punishing of professions. Ms. Lamott's honest yet encouraging depiction of the travails of anyone crazy enough to try his/her hand at this, ALMOST makes ME feel crazy enough ... A bonus is her eloquent musings on the-meaning-of-it-all, equal to the efforts of famous philosophers.

Ack, oop! My customer reviewer ranking is slipping! With the passing of Charles Schulz, and the demise of such great strips as Pogo, Calvin and Hobbes, and Bloom County, 'tis a blessing indeed to have Sherman and his gang. Brilliantly morbid, wonderfully drawn, howlingly funny.
Hotel Du Lac (Vintage Contemporaries) von Anita Brookner
This is yet another excercise in semi-autobiographical snoring by an otherwise capable writer.
Why do they DO this? Yeah, yeah, the writer's life is a lonely one, full of self-doubt, sackcloth and ashes.
Our hero, Edith, is in a self-imposed exile at some stuffy old hotel, doing penance for an errant love affair. She takes long walks, broods, takes more long walks, broods some more. Meanwhile, the only diversion for the hapless reader is a collection of societal parasites killing time at the same hotel.
Give this one a wide berth.
