Reviews

." -. . a guide to writing essays that is both brilliantly instructive and wonderfully entertaining. -. . . Highly recommended for writers and anyone who loves to laugh out loud while they read."
-- Library Journal (starred review)

"[Moore's] witty and disarming new book is framed as an advice column for accomplished writers. . . He is fun to read (don't miss Mr Plimpton's Revenge: A Google Maps Essay, in Which George Plimpton Delivers My Belated and Well-Deserved Comeuppance). And he sneaks in answers so we are left with a touch of wisdom as well as laughter."
-- BBC.com "Dear Mister Essay Writer Guy is Moore at his best. It's witty but also substantial, and the conversations between Moore and his interlocutors get to the heart of what makes the essay such a compelling form: its capacity to render, on the page, the human experience."
-- The Rumpus ." . . the book as a whole will leave you feeling educated, amused, and perhaps even inspired."
-- The A.V. Club "Dear Mister Essay Writer Guy is an enjoyable read. . . Its witty, modest tone belies the artistry of the essays contained, which are exemplars of the short form."
