Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Anna Deveare Smith 've read a few of these "letters to a youngster" type books. I find the conceit of them a bit offputting but this one is nonetheless full of useful nuggets from the always engaging Anna Deveare Smith who is a great artist in her own right. If you're pursuing a career in the arts and feeling a little overwhelmed, burnt out, or confused, these little pep talks might be useful for you.
