In her investigations, Smith also reveals much of herself. Her literary criticism shares the wealth of her experiences as a reader and exposes the tremendous influence the work of E. M. Forster, Zora Neale Hurston, George Eliot, and others have had on her writing life and self-understanding. Smith also speaks directly to writers as a craftsman, offering precious practical lessons on process, and encouraging readers to attend to the slippery questions of identity, art, love, and vocation.

I could barely finish except when Smith inserted her personal experience. brilliant literary criticism was lost in a bored narrator's drone.
