CONSIDER THIS: Moments in My Writing Life after Which Everything Was Different is Palahniuk’s first book on writing and his first major work of long-form nonfiction. Its combination of memoir and insights into the writing life is reminiscent of Stephen King’s On Writing, and like that seminal text, may cause readers to rethink the author’s place in the literary canon.
In this spellbinding blend of memoir and insight, Palahniuk shares stories and generous advice on what makes writing powerful and what makes for powerful writing. With advice grounded in years of careful study and a keenly observed life, Palahniuk combines practical advice and concrete examples from beloved classics, his own books, and a “kitchen-table MFA” culled from an evolving circle of beloved authors and artists, with anecdotes, postcards from the road, and much more. Clear-eyed, sensitive, illuminating, and knowledgeable, CONSIDER THIS is Palahniuk’s love letter to stories and storytellers, booksellers and books themselves.
