Book Review: The Way of the Writer


The Way of the Writer

Reflections on the Art and Craft of Storytelling
by Charles Johnson

Scribner

Nonfiction (Adult)

Pub Date 06 Dec 2016

I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of The Way of the Writer through the publisher and Netgalley:

This book is the reflections of award winning novelist Charles Johnson whose novel Middle Passage is classified as a modern day classic.

The author talks about the six unpublished novels he worked on from 1970-1972 until his debut novel Faith and the Good Thing.

Charles Johnson talks about the importance of having a “writing place.”  

He also talks about his work as a cartoonist.

Later on Johnson goes on to describe the process of writing.

I give The Way of the Writer five out of five stars.

Happy Reading.
