Summary
"In this essay collection, Cherry explores the craft of writing, tracing her own development from rebellious college student to award-winning author of 19 books of poetry, fiction, short fiction, and criticism. She discusses her early life in Ithaca, New York, as the child of struggling musicians busy trying to survive and with little time for parenting. She was kicked out of college twice, but over the years she wrote - and then, receiving little encouragement, quit. Finally, she entered the writing programme at the University of North Carolina and achieved success. Cherry's essays are on topics such as writing, reading, life...with reflections on beauty, art, vocation, as well as essays of literary criticism on the works of American women writers."--Publisher's description
