"An elegantly written memoir, featuring an array of vividly drawn tales from 50-plus years of writing, reporting and teaching." (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)
Zinsser tells the story of his writing life in somewhat stilted, breathy narration. While bits are interesting, much of it feels like a long list of "I did this" and "I did that". As an example, he spends a long time talking about former students who became successful writers. He goes on and on about his own book on writing and how well it sold, etc. etc. For me, this book was short on anecdotes and long on bragging.
