really liked it
bookshelves: 2009, biography, creativity
Read in January, 2009

there were moments when i felt conflicted about this book, put-off. the archetypes stuff becomes heavy-handed because it is just so overused. which i think is the failure mostly of ann powers, for not offering different types of insights in her italicized interjections.

that said, this was exactly the right moment for me to read this book and i feel that i got a lot out of it. it's a sort of inner monologue. tori's discussions of creativity, of what it means to be a creative woman in the 21st century, of aging and learning and changing, of her own dark places are immensely moving and thought-provoking. this happens to dovetail nicely with other things i'm reading and thinking about right now, and i really enjoyed it.

kimberly i was really excited when i bought this book 4-odd years ago, yet i still haven't gotten myself to read it ....

secondwomn i've owned it for probably a similar amount of time and never read it before. but that's ok, cause now was really the perfect time for this to hit me.
