Of book readers and book writers

My friend Rebecca Steinitz has written an interesting and moving column on what it feels like to go from being a lifelong reader to becoming the author of a published book, and how an academic career left behind may be more continuous with subsequent choices and experiences than it seems at the time.


  1. This is a wonderful piece - thanks for blogging about it!

  2. I must admit that I've been considering a return to blogging lately, and this piece nudges me a bit closer to doing so. Though family may not be mine - despite or because of my large one?? - I do find that writers return again and again to their own core concerns.
