Curious Attractions: Essays on Fiction Writing by Debra Spark

I read this collection because I'm interested in what creative writers say about creativity and the writing process. Spark blends memoir and a personal essay style with excellent close reading that help me understand what a story is for the writer. I especially like the piece on emotion and sentimentality.
