Publisher's Summary

Ernest Hemingway, Zadie Smith, Joan Didion, Franz Kafka, David Foster Wallace, and more. In Process, acclaimed journalist Sarah Stodola examines the creative methods of literature's most transformative figures. Each chapter contains a mini biography of one of the world's most lauded authors, focused solely on his or her writing process. Unlike how-to books that preach writing techniques or rules, Process puts the true methods of writers on display in their most captivating incarnation: within the context of the lives from which they sprang. Drawn from both existing material and original research and interviews, Stodola brings to light the fascinating, unique, and illuminating techniques behind these literary behemoths.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. I didn't find this interesting or illuminating. This seems to be material recycled from other (secondary) sources. There's not much new here.

Do you think Process needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

A book after my heart

I love knowing about the insiders' perspective of writers. This book was a detailed examination of some great writers and the parts of their lives lost relevant to writing. I hope there are sequels with more writers examined. I want to know more about some long dead authors; this book dealt with contemporary authors or those of the more recent past like Hemingway or Kafka.
