I loved this book. It's a collection of essays, mostly about the life of being a writer, and it's ripe with quotes from other writers. Susan Musgrave's wry sense of humour fuels this collection. She doesn't take herself - or the writerly life - all that seriously.

She's sometimes billed as one of the very few Canadian writers who has managed to support herself through writing, but I suspect she'd be the first to say it's at least partly because she has managed to forge a lifestyle that doesn't require much money.

If you sometimes dream, as I do, about being a writer, you should read this book.

(Perhaps ironically, I purchased my autographed copy of this book online for a penny, plus $6.99 shipping.)
