    Magic Hours Kindle Ê ✓ MOBI posthd.pro magic epub, hours download, Magic Hours MOBIIt's a difficult thing for me to evaluate this Scratch that It's a difficult thing for me to evaluate ANY book not just this Even bad books ones I carry deep dark hatreds for reuire a vigorous and focused back and forth I will always be awed by the spirit it takes for a person to create I think it is remarkably courageous; even if for many writers this is unfounded and block headed courage it is courage nonetheless I imagine many war heroes were not exactly rocket scientists which is why they tried to fight 40 Germans with a spoon in the first place and somehow succeeded There's a point to all of this somewhere I think it has to do with liking very much parts of a book and disliking very much other parts and making peace with thisI've read a few things by Tom Bissell now and I even attend

    Magic Hours Kindle Ê ✓ MOBI posthd.pro magic epub, hours download, Magic Hours MOBIBoy do I love Tom Bissell's writing There is just no other way to say it And I'm a sucker for his subject artistic process and artistic reputation The opening essay Unflowered Aloes is a sobering account of just how easily the work of Walt Whitman Emily Dickinson and Herman Melville might have failed to come down to us today in each case there were uite lucky circumstances There's an amusing and insightful piece on how to write guides and a remarkable article about a remarkable group calling itself the Underground Literary Alliance The ULA seems to be made up of members most of them with noms de guerrewho seem to believe that anyone who manages to publish a book today is by definition a mediocrity with connections The piece is really about the concept sometimes fantasy of literary insiders and outsiders and Bissell offers the clearly crankish a

    Magic Hours Kindle Ê ✓ MOBI posthd.pro magic epub, hours download, Magic Hours MOBIA bit of an inconsistent collection if only because all the pieces were written over 12 years for different magazines and different audiences The piece about Jeff Daniels's opus Escanaba in da Moonlight has a predictable kick your hometown in the nuts sort of feel but Bissell can turn a phrase masterfully and keeps it interesting My favorite chapter is the one called Writing About Writing About Writing where he takes various self help authors to the woodshed in a masterfully bitchy way There are other outstanding long essays involving people like Jim Harrison and Robert Kaplan who Bissell fairly convincingly prosecutes for being both a shitty writer and a cold hearted warmonger Even the bits of literary criticism are worthy although after a re read I still can't figure out whether he thinks The Sun Also Rises is a good book or not He obviously takes writing seriously b

I am not a fan of nounverbs I know English is a constantly evolving language but that's a trend I just don't care for It just strikes me as being sort of twee somehow with an air of Look Ma I'm making up words and being creative Also there was a section of the book in which the author is talking about the ineptitude of a filmmaker and trying to pass it off as the new creativity I just couldn't buy it It's one thing to understand the language of film and use it in a surprising or unexpected

    Magic Hours Kindle Ê ✓ MOBI posthd.pro magic epub, hours download, Magic Hours MOBIReading Tom Bissell’s Magic Hours Essays on Creators and Creation was a similar experience to watching the Darjeeling Limited for the first time on a Jet Blue flight to Boston from Tampa without any turbulence If David Foster Wallace’s magnificent writing were an opioid this book functioned as literary methadone to help wean me from the withdrawal symptoms of not having any big scores left to consume after completing The Pale KingThis collection included discourse on the struggles of one’s writing being discovered and deemed famous and culturally relevant Jeff Daniels creating a film in Escanaba Michigan Werner Herzog’s uniue filmmaking career including rescuing Joauin
