A working writer for more than 20 years, with many books, short stories, and articles published, award-winning author Laura Resnick has frequently written the wacky, stark, insane, improbable truth about the working life of a novelist for the country's top publishing trade journals. This book is a collection of those columns. Often ironic and always hilarious, Resnick's essays expose the daily despair and rewards of the fiction writer's (i.e. "the filthy pro's") life for anyone who even imagines they want to write professionally or who wonders what the professional writing life is really like.
