I am reviewing a copy of Thus I Lived With Words through University of Iowa Press/Muse Books and Netgalley:

The thing Robert Louis Stevenson who lived from 1850-1894 loved to talk about most was the Craft of Writing.

Stevenson belonged to the newly commercial literary world, the start of the era of mass readership, marketing and celebrity.  A time when writers were often revered.  He gave plenty of practical advise for writers.  Stevenson believed the greatest thing a writer could do was find an appetite of joy.

I give Thus I Lived With Words five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
