Damian Barr

I love books by writers about writing—super-meta. Part memoir, part manual, this classic traces the trajectory of his writing life form making up stories with his brother and selling them at school through family breakup to his own alcoholism and finally Carrie. He shows how to (ab)use your life in your fiction and is basically a key to unlocking his writing and your own abilities.
