5.0 out of 5 stars Fanning the Spark and Not Getting Burned, May 21, 2009

(REAL NAME)   
This is a wonderful reminescence providing an intimate glimpse into a talented and persistant mind at work creating/writing and intenting and reinventing the self throuh the her involvment with her world. I should disclose up front that Mary Ward Brown is a friend of mine who goes way back in her connections to my family. No doubt those relationships influence some of how I feel about this work, but I believe that our history is independent of my valuation of this slim volume's insight into how a talented mine regards her work and goes about creating it. It is intensely self-revelatory without falling into the maudling sentimentality of a self absorbed person. She is a profound observer and she observes herself with the same honest, genuine ferocity that she turns of others.

4.0 out of 5 stars wonderful truth teller, October 2, 2013

Mary Ward brown's greatest enemy was clearly she herself and her drive for perfection. She wrote such wonderful stories but wished to write more, as her readers sorely wish as well!
