Summary: This is a collection of anecdotes about various famous writers.
Likes: There were multiple stories I thought were interesting and humorous. (Some of them I’ve done posts about.)
Dislikes: I wasn’t interested in all of the writers and I wasn’t interested in all of the stories. It also had a predominantly negative tone.
Overall it makes sense that I wouldn’t be into every story because the author and I find different authors and different pieces of their lives interesting. But I do feel like the introduction set this up as something I would be predominantly laughing at. But I didn’t find that to be the case.
Sexual situations, use of drugs, etc are described but these situations aren’t gone into graphically.
