Review: Surviving a Writer’s Life


Surviving a Writer's Life
Surviving a Writer’s Life by Suzanne Lipsett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stumbled over this little jewel in a used book store. A great little “On Writing” book I’ve never heard of. Despite the how-to title, this is a very deep and at times dark memoir. I am so glad there is someone out there willing to bear all, both of her personal life and of her professional insecurities. The greatest lesson she imparts is that it’s okay to come into one’s own as a writer after 40, that a level of maturity and security makes one better.
