Letters to a Young Writer: Some Practical and Philosophical AdviceLetters to a Young Writer: Some Practical and Philosophical Advice by Colum McCann

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Modeled after Rilke's classic Letters to a Young Poet, this book of short chapters is chock full of advice for the aspiring writer. A lot of the advice is familiar from other books of this genre, but McCann is a sharp, engaging, often blunt writer who makes a lot of it fresh and vigorous. The writing is inspiring and motivating and makes it a worthwhile read for the fledgling writer.

[I received an advanced e-galley from Netgalley. The book is due to be released on April 4, 2017.]
