The Story About the Story; J.C. Hallman

The Story About the Story: Great Writers Explore Great LiteratureThe Story About the Story: Great Writers Explore Great Literature by J.C. Hallman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another one of those books that works well as an in-between book - something to read in-between reading other books, or when you have only a short time in which to read and don't want to get caught up in a full-length book.

This is a collection of short(ish) essays by writers on books, writers and genres and as a result it's a little choppy. Some essays were great, others less so. A few made me want to read (or re-read) the book or the author's genre, some I only read the first page or so and moved on.
