Description

A fresh and provocative picture of what it means to create literature, this collection of Steven Heighton's notes to himself as he writes peeks into the mind of an acclaimed author. The short pieces reveal Heighton's pointed, cutting take on his own work and materialize the musings and meditations that come to him as he scribbles. Offering new perspectives and insights into the creative process, this wholly original book shows what lies outside the pages of the bestsellers written by this Canadian author.
