For anyone who has ever aspired to be a writer, this is an apt choice. Hegi's story within a story is spot on in portraying the sometimes confusing welter of voices that, whether you want them to or not, intrude on your daily life--just as your daily life intrudes on your work. Very highly recommended. ( )

A book best read while embracing intrusions, this book weaved authorial intrusions, author-character intrusions, and outright re-writes into the mix. i imagine the frequency of intrusions might frustrate some readers, but the unique format kept me interested to the last page. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0684844818, Paperback)

Brilliantly stretching literary conventions, Ursula Hegi, author of the best-selling Stones from the River, creates a funny and original novel within a novel to explore the doubts, decisions, and "might-have-beens" that mark not only the writing process but life itself. As her "author" and her fictional heroine deal with their intrusions into each other's lives, Hegi reveals much about the choices women make, the ambiguities they face, and the often surprising ways reality and fiction merge.
