Draft no. 4
McPhee is a writer of nonfiction. Here he reveals some of his history, some of his secrets, most of which boil down to working hard. I loved the revealing details of various fact checkers and copy editors that work very hard to perfect a piece. I always thought of writing as a solitary task.
There are so many fun anecdotes and pieces that are revealed to make the whole. Certainly not a "how to" but occasionally a "how not to." I loved the authors voice, sense of humor and curiosity. A gem about the craft of writing.
