"With a pithiness that wards away the preachy, Smith succeeds in conveying the pain, the joy, and the effort that characterize a life on the stage and in the world." (Publishers Weekly)
"Smith is generous, vulnerable, and perceptive. Readers of all disciplines will come away from these pages feeling opened, nurtured, and eager to follow Smith's call to action." (Booklist)

Heartening and a joy!
What made the experience of listening to Letters to a Young Artist the most enjoyable?
ADS has a warmth in her voice and delivery that makes the advice and recollections feel as though they are being delivered by a trusted family member. Like a gentle hand on your knee, reassuring your progress and path in authenticity.
Who was your favorite character and why?
As this was not a fiction piece, Anna Deavere Smith was my favorite character.
Which character – as performed by Anna Deavere Smith – was your favorite?
She did some characterizations but her recollections as herself were my favorite.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I wouldn't think an extreme reaction would come from this content, but it did make me contemplative.
Any additional comments?
I would love to meet the author and discuss art and creativity even more because of this book.
