Description

Taken from award-winning writer Lorrie Moore's debut short story collection Self-Help (1985), How To Become a Writer is a wryly witty deconstruction of tips for aspiring writers, told in vignettes by a self-absorbed narrator who fails to observe the wrold around her. A modern classic, this story has been pulled out to accompany the launch of the Faber Modern Classics list.
