Great set of essays on writing...with a poetry basis, but her insights are useful for any writer. I especially like the explorations on such topics as the poem as a container for grief, and her memoir-based pieces. I like Gallagher's poetry, but I think I enjoy this little book (part of the U Mich writers on writing series) even more.
