Jon Carroll wrote a fabulous review of Naked, Drunk, and Writing in The San Francisco Chronicle a few days ago – here’s an excerpt:
She’s studied writing, is what I’m trying to say. She has chosen apposite quotations and instructive anecdotes. She talks a lot about the students in her justly famous writing classes, and the good things they have gone on to do, and she quotes from their works – which, oddly enough, illustrate exactly the points that she’s trying to make.
So I do sincerely recommend this book, even though it was written by a friend of mine who knows more than I do – the very worst kind.
