The ABC of Writing by Emma Tennant

Title: The ABC of WritingABC of Writing

Author: Emma Tennant

Publisher: Faber and Faber

This fun little book is not of any significance to the writing world. Snarky quotes from authors, nasty jabs from those who despise authors, and hilarious definitions of terms and phrases related to the righting craft.  Frost, Shakespeare, Twain are all well represented as are Johnson, Coleridge, and other less notorious but equally as illustrious authors.

Looking for something light? Want to giggle, chuckle, and guffaw outloud after a hard day of drafting, reworking, and editing? This is just the ticket! The ABC of Writing will have you flipping through its pages and shooting word noodles out your nostrils! I know I did!

    You must mean “writing craft”?

    every time I read a list of famous writers, whose works have survived time, I am painfully struck by the small number of women among them.
