But this one was different. No scary scenes in here except when he tells about being hit by a van in 1999.
The first part of the book gives some background of his life and then seamlessly moves on to his advice for writers. He doesn't give a grammar lecture or long spiel about story arcs but he delivers a message that as writers we must use our accumulated experiences to craft fiction by telling the truth about ourselves and the world around us. It's a great book filled with funny anecdotes and tips. I recommend it to all writers.
And yes, now I'm going to read something else by him. I've already checked out his latest book, 11/22/63, from the library.
