This book is big trouble for you if you're a writer!,

This review is from: The Art of Time in Memoir: Then, Again (Paperback)
I loved this book. Very quickly I found myself in conflict (thus the big trouble reference in the review title). Do I stop reading after three paragraphs so that I can write, as I am inspired to do? Do I keep writing? Do I pull my work and begin to edit? As a student in an MFA program, I found this to be a very helpful book, especially as I had been wrestling with the exact issue for a while, and so had a strong contextual need for the instruction offered by Birkerts. Thanks!
