Last week I read Steve Almond's "This won't take but a minute honey" at Michal's insistence. It's a short one, less than 100 pages. Technically it's two books, one side is full of short stories and the other is more insights on the craft of writing.
Imagine Sedaris writing a book about, well writing! I tend to feel highly enamored when reading books about how to craft a story. To me stories are just are just as magical an art form as painting is. And as usual when I love some art form I feel the need to investigate the person behind it. I love that this book is self published. That it's "handmade" if you will. I like that there is no fuss about sales, only content and sharing.
I hate to add another bk to your must read list everyone but I must. It'll take you 30 minutes to read this, and it doesn't disappoint!
