Gorgeous to read, funny and touching. Short stories about writing and books and love and friendship and pets. Beautiful and well-paced.

"I'm never lonely when I'm around books. It's the world of endless possibility and opportunity to be in that building full of books."

To provide her with an income to support her fiction writing, Ann Patchett wrote many articles over the years for a wide variety of publications--Vogue, The New York Times, The Bark-- on a number of subjects: her beautiful dog Rose; the start-up of her book store; how to write; how to have a happy marriage; and many other topics. She is smart, funny, opinionated, candid, and a wonderful writer. Patchett makes great company, and this reads like a conversation with a like-minded friend. Highly recommended with a glass of wine or a cup of tea, and a cozy spot to curl up.

This is a collection of essays by the author, previously published elsewhere. Most of the stories are not all that interesting; however, they are well-written. I gave this book many stars based solely on the story of her marriage, for it's raw honesty and beauty.
