Of our contemporary authorsAlongside the blogs are brilliant essays on character voice writers' workshops and writers' health and the book ends with the transcript of Kennedy's celebrated one person show about writing and language that she has performed round the world to huge acclaim Read together all these pieces add up to the most intimate master class imaginable from one of the finest and most humane writers in our languag The chapters have the telltale confessional and slightly repetitive tone of writing collected from an alternative use in this case blog entries and lectures The book ends up with a truly satisfying and convincing argument for the power and importance of art I enjoyed it very much
