Reviews - What do customers think about Walking Light?

Excellent Collection to Inspire Writers  May 10, 2004
A college creative writing teacher first introduced me to this book in 1997 and I have loved to visit it over years. Dunn writes in a way that is distinctly personal, humorous, sincere, and sometimes brutally honest. He is a gifted storyteller who is able to weave writing advice effortlessly in with his tales. I would recommend my "favorite" chapters, but feel like this is a book best discovered without someone else's prejudices. This book can be read straight through from cover to cover, or the reader can skip around and read based on a chapter heading that catches his/her interest. Pick up this book and you'll want to seek out the rest of Dunn's writing.
