Review of Publishing: A Writer’s Memoir
All at once, in Publishing: A Writer’s Memoir, Gail Godwin has written for us a history, a how-to guide, a personal journey, and a cautionary tale. No matter her point of view, though, her message is consistent throughout: The endeavor to publish is not a path for the easily discouraged.
“I would have to live through some humiliating failures,” she writes. “When you were down, it seemed, the insults piled up.”
