it was ok
Read in December, 2009

I was disappointed in this book. It was pretty skimpy to begin with and when you remove all the wrestling stuff (in which I have zero interest) you are left with a couple of pages of Irving’s experiences and opinions on writing. This was interesting but I actually found far more of that in his fictional works – particularly in his latest Last Night in Twisted River. In fact, although obviously not reliable on a fact by fact basis, I think you also get a better sense of the man by reading his fiction than by reading this memoir.
