This book was recommended to me a couple years ago and I put it on my list to read. When it came up twice in one week – from another friend and in another book – I went straight to the library and checked it out. While reading it at a film festival, two people commented on it. And when I returned it to the library, someone saw it in my hand and said it was one of her favorite books. I would not put it in that category, but it is worth reading if you are interested in writing, especially fiction.
