Highly recommended for all writers. Lott is refreshingly humble. This book would be a great companion, especially during periods of self doubt (so always, I guess). If I ever taught a creative course, I'd have students read "A Home, A House: On Writing and Rejection." They probably wouldn't like it or believe it (I wouldn't when I was younger) but it'd be good advice for students to have in the back of their brain when they finally did "get it."
