Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them

Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them - Francine Prose The book is part personal stories part "here is what I do as a creative writing teacher". Maybe she's a wonderful teacher. The book however seemed more dry than I would have liked.. My favorite chapter was the one about Chekhov.
