Thunder and Lightening has been one of the mainstays in my writing collection for more than a decade. I find it impossible to read more than one or two in this collection of essays without putting the book down and starting to write. Goldberg delivers helpful advice in a distinctive voice, and taps into much of the challenge of writing and continuing to write.
Oddly enough, I don’t enjoy her two earlier writing books nearly as much, and I’ve never been able to pinpoint exactly why.
Thunder and Lightening is an essential part of a writer’s library — at least for this writer.
