Description
(First Edition, Signed Bookplate) The author of the PEN/Faulkner Award and Orange Prize winner Bel Canto and the Orange Prize finalist State of Wonder—as well as the memoir Truth and Beauty, about her friendship with Lucy Grealy—Ann Patchett here examines her deepest commitments to create a resonant portrait of a life. "The tricky thing about being a writer, or about being any kind of artist," she says, "is that in addition to making art you also have to make a living." Stretching from her childhood to the present day, from a disastrous early marriage to a later happy one, Patchett covers a multitude of topics—including her commitments to writing, family, friends, dogs, books, and her husband—and charts the hard work and joy of writing, and the unexpected thrill of opening a bookstore.
