it was amazing

Lee Smith mentored me when I was first learning how to write fiction. With DIMESTORE she is mentoring me still, showing me how to live as a writer. Smith recognizes story when she hears it, be it in an MFA program or coming from a woman wearing a man's hat and dropping papers and pens all over the place when she enters class late.

Once I'd successfully written a novel, I became in the public's eye, a writer. It can actually be a heavy mantle to carry, and difficult to navigate. With wit and charm and the hugest heart of anyone I know, Smith not only navigates it but shows us how it's done.

I loved this book. I will return to it again and again. I am not just saying this. I mean it.
