At once a memoir of an exotic life, a meditation on the art and craft of writing, and a brilliant examination of the always complex relationship between fiction and life, Lynn Freed's critically acclaimed "Reading, Writing, and Leaving Home" surprises, instructs, and delights. With " dark and comforting wisdom" (Anne Lamott) and " great intellectual and emotional range" (Diane Johnson), Freed tears off all fictional disguises and exposes the human being behind the artist. A must-read for writers, readers, and anyone engaged in literature, "Reading, Writing, and Leaving Home" is destined to be a classic in the field of writing about writing.
