Synopsis About this title A collection of journal excerpts from the critically acclaimed author of A Mother and Two Daughters sheds new light on the world of a writer as she describes her search for her own place in the world, her coming of age as a writer, her life choices, her travels, and the people, events, and places that served as raw material for her later works. Review : " As a diarist myself I read Gail Godwin's diary with complicity, pleasure, suspense, annoyance, competitiveness, astonishment and, yes, a touch of jealousy.
The novel's protagonist is Emma Gant. Deeply ambitious, talented and driven, Emma sees herself winning Pulitzer Prizes for her journalism while writing brilliant novels.
The Making of a Writer, Volume 2
She also enchants every man within eyeshot of her slim figure and blond hair. Emma has no intention of getting trapped in the traditional ghetto of the women's section with its soft features or in a Florida bureau. Jane Austen created the original Emma, a headstrong heroine with an ego the size of the pyramids.
This Emma clearly enchants her creator, Gail Godwin, but readers swiftly tire of Emma's ceaseless railing against the cruel fates that force a cub reporter to write obits instead of front-page exposs during her first week on the job. She also appears to feel little guilt for her affair with a married man.
