Publishing A Writer’s Memoir Review

A brief reflection on a magnificent read:

Rarely do we find gold by shifting the granules of sand on a beach with a toe. But today I spent a few hours with a friend of whom I’d never met or prior to read, and sunshine from her gilded reflection freshened my face: thrifty prose of lessons in life—of patience, hunger, and desire—whose outcomes whether by death or success could equally be satisfying. For we all eventually expire.

I thoroughly recommend this self-exposition by prolific author, Gail Godwin, accounting for the trials and tribulations of book publishing almost to the present day. An engrossing read, merely 200 pages, for book lovers and aspiring writers alike.
