The Writing Life / Annie Dillard

I picked this up and read it in an evening. It was after a long time of only reading politics and news, like an addict, on my phone and machine–Twitter, newspaper blogs, other pundits, and it was such a pleasure to read in language that is artful. Real language, language that puts me into an idea and carries me off. Then I remembered the joy of reading books. Edited, curated, thoughtful–ART.
