Dani Shapiro’s part memoir part advice on writing reveals how she became a writer and her writing process. Growing up as the only child of older parents who are observant Jews, she spent most of time in the Sabbath reading or writing. Although I have not read any of Shapiro’s book, I have always interested in learning about a writer’s process. In Shapiro’s case, the level of concentration to just write appeals to me. I don’t plan on becoming a writer either, but I enjoyed reading how writers still writing.
