    Paperback Ê Magic Hours eBook ´ magic kindle, hours epub, Magic Hours MOBIBissell is a decent essayist with an eclectic outlook ‘Unflowered Aloes’ is an intelligent discussion of literary immortality and the afterlife of books I believe no book should fall out of print unless espousing hateful ideologies ‘Grief and the Outsider’ explores the dark hinterland of the unpublished writer standing in their frustrated droves and flinging turds at the published and the publishers with a look at the Underground Literary Alliance a strange organisation that still seems to exist not unlike the organised Indie Author movements at large now and ‘Writing About Writing About Writing’ is an hilarious look at the self help writers’ books whose advice ranges from

    Paperback Ê Magic Hours eBook ´ magic kindle, hours epub, Magic Hours MOBIIt's a difficult thing for me to evaluate this Scratch that It's a difficult thing for me to evaluate ANY book not just this Even bad books ones I carry deep dark hatreds for require a vigorous and focused back and forth I will always be awed by the spirit it takes for a person to create I think it is remarkably courageous even if for many writers this is unfounded and block headed courage it is courage nonetheless I imagine many war heroes were not exactly rocket scientists which is why they tried to fight 40 Germans with a spoon in the first place and somehow succeeded There's a point to all of this somewhere I think it has to do with liking very much parts of a book and di

    Paperback Ê Magic Hours eBook ´ magic kindle, hours epub, Magic Hours MOBIBoy do I love Tom Bissell's writing There is just no other way to say it And I'm a sucker for his subject artistic process and artistic reputation The opening essay Unflowered Aloes is a sobering account of just how easily the work of Walt Whitman Emily Dickinson and Herman Melville might have failed to come down to us today in each case there were quite lucky circumstances There's an amusing and insightful piece on how to write guides and a remarkable article about a remarkable group calling itself the Underground Literary Alliance The ULA seems to be made up of members most of them with noms de guerrewho seem

    Paperback Ê Magic Hours eBook ´ magic kindle, hours epub, Magic Hours MOBIA bit of an inconsistent collection if only because all the pieces were written over 12 years for different magazines and different audiences The piece about Jeff Daniels's opus Escanaba in da Moonlight has a predictable kick your hometown in the nuts sort of feel but Bissell can turn a phrase masterfully and keeps it interesting My favorite chapter is the one called Writing About Writing About Writing where he takes various self help authors to the woodshed in a masterfully bitchy way There are other outstanding long essays involving people like Jim Harrison and Robert Kaplan who Bissell fairly convincingly prosecutes for being both a shitty writer and a cold hearted warmonger Even the bits of literary criticism are worthy although after a re read I still can't figure out whether he thinks The Sun Also Rises is a good book or

    Paperback Ê Magic Hours eBook ´ magic kindle, hours epub, Magic Hours MOBIThe tagline on this book says Essays on creators and creation No this is not what the book is about at all It is the author's critique of certain works books and movies and sometimes certain people He really hates Robert Kaplan and I mean really hates Bissell can be extraordinarily harsh cruel and condescending Also his writing was boring So very BORING It was difficult to wade through this book and when its library due date came up and I hadn't finished it I gladly took it back instead of renewing it

    Paperback Ê Magic Hours eBook ´ magic kindle, hours epub, Magic Hours MOBIReading Tom Bissell’s Magic Hours Essays on Creators and Creation was a similar experience to watching the Darjeeling Limited for the first time on a Jet Blue flight to Boston from Tampa without any turbulence If David Foster Wallace’s magnificent writing were an opioid this book functioned as literary methadone to help wean me from the withdrawal symptoms of not having any big scores left to consume after completing The Pale KingThis collection included discourse on the struggles of one’s writing being discovered and deemed famous and culturally relevant Jeff Daniels creating a film in Escanaba Michigan Werner Herzog’s unique filmmaking career including rescuing Joaquin Phoenix from a car crash Tommy Wiseau as
