The author doesn't just READ her book of advice for young writers. She sounds like she's having a conversation with listeners, so infused with warmth and respect is her voice. Levine talks about writing problems and techniques--beginnings, dialogue, characterization, style--using examples from her own and other writers' works. She encourages listeners to try out the exercises she provides, build skills, and have fun. Levine hits a hopeful balance between helping writers value their creativity while remaining open to revision and improvement. She emphasizes the importance of regular work and effort over talent or inspiration. A.F. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
