Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir arrives

Friday, July 5, 2013

Am I afraid to open it? Yes. (I feel this way about every book.)

Will I open it someday? Perhaps. (I think that is required, and probably sooner or later, as I have two book interviews scheduled for next week. I need to know myself, to the degree that is still possible. To the degree that I can bear myself.)

Do I love the cover? Absolutely. (It's a dream cover, and you can't lose it at night.)

Many thanks to the Gotham team for making Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir the reality it has become. I very much wanted this to be a paperback book, so that it would not represent a burden on writers' and students' budgets. Gotham saw this—and many other things—in precisely the same way, and for that I'm ever grateful.

You can't lose it at night -- ha! Congratulations, Beth! I'm looking forward to reading it!

I can't wait until mine arrives.

Katrina said...

Hooray. Open it! Trust me, you'll be glad you did. It is such a wonderful book, Beth, and I can't wait to share it -- with friends, fellow writers, and readers. And I'll be so glad to replace my battered galley with a pristine finished book! Congratulations my friend!

Adrienne said...

It is wonderful...a slow, delicious, 'journal along with it' read. I am learning. Thank you.

Beth Kephart said...

Oh, Adrienne. Thank you.

Beth Kephart said...

And Libby, Becca, Katrina—thank you, each of you, for the very special and particular things you have done for me throughout my career.
