THE DESTINY THIEF Essays on Writing, Writers and Life

by | Read by Richard Russo

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Richard Russo narrates this thoughtful audiobook aimed at writers and readers. While not blessed with an extraordinary voice, Russo's timing, wit, and delivery animate this memoir. One of our most gifted comic fiction writers, he shares his knowledge of the writing life and brings his empathetic spirit to the thorny subject how best--in this era of anyone can publish--to enter the writing profession. He has seen the writer's world evolve and change from the vantage points of a struggling writer teaching in various outposts to make ends meet to his loftier perch today as a novelist, screenwriter, and essayist who is read, admired, and well paid. Fans and emerging writers will find much to appreciate in his perspectives. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
