Janelle asked Frances Mayes:

Is there one project that you have written that you are most proud of? One that is personally satisfying?

Frances Mayes A breakthrough for me was writing The Discovery of Poetry, a guide for readers and writers. The process trained me to organize and clarify and besides gave me the chance to read and reread thousands of poems. My new memoir, too, is personally very gratifying to have written. It was difficult but I wanted to reveal the small town that was a world to me.
