Reviews

"This guide to literary success is wonderfully original and smart and funny and down-to-earth--just what desperate beginning writers desperately need."
--Alison Lurie

"This is a terrific and extremely useful book for anyone who wants to write. Carolyn See is brilliant and funny, crabby and tender and wise."
--Anne Lamott "Wise, witty, practical, mordant, funny, this is the only guide to becoming a writer that may actually work. It's a primer on Carolyn See: great artist, large soul."
--James Ellroy "Carolyn See doesn't just tell you to sharpen your pencils, she shows you how to sharpen your wits."
--Rita Mae Brown "After reading Making a Literary Life, I have decided to abandon my present career and become an aspirant writer, this time guided by Carolyn See's wonderfully instructive (and readable) book."
--William F. Buckley, Jr. "Carolyn See has been giving me lessons on writing and living since my first book came out, and when Carolyn See talks, I obey. I bow down in gratitude. We should rejoice at this serious, joyful, irreverent, and very practical book."
--Elizabeth Benedict "If everyone who wants to be a writer would read this book there would be many more good writers, many more happy writers, and editors would be so overwhelmed by sweetness they would accept many more good books. So what are you waiting for? Read it!"
--Ursula K. Le Guin
