really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read from April 29 to June 05, 2012

My favorite essays: "Writing about Writing about Writing" about writing advice books, "Great and Terrible Truths" about David Foster Wallace, "The Theory and Practice of Not Giving a Shit" about the writer Jim Harrison. The gem, for me, was "Escanaba's Magic Hour", in which he returns to his small Michigan hometown to cover its invasion by a film crew making an independent movie there. It's a thoughtful piece on the perception of small towns, from both an insider and outsider perspective.
