Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection of personal, autobiographical essays was originally published in the literary journal ZYZZYVA. Chosen by Junker, the journal's editor, the 19 essays tackle why and how a person becomes a writer, with an emphasis on the emotional and psychological aspects of that journey. The quality of the essays varies. Some, such as Opal Palmer Adisa's "Lying in the Tall Grasses, Eating Cane," sparkle; others reveal little about the author's motivations. Not an essential purchase, this is best for larger libraries with a concentration on writers and writing. Fooling with Words (LJ 9/15/99), edited by Bill Moyers, more fully captures the mix of passion and discipline that create a writer.--Shana C. Fair, Ohio Univ.
