Product Overview

Both wise and witty, "Only As Good As Your Word" is a memoir of writing and friendship. Sue Shapiro imparts important lessons about what to do (and what not to do) while on the road to becoming a writer. "Only As Good As Your Word" is also a thoughtful tribute to her many writing mentors, as well as revealing the experience of being a mentor, the writing process itself and what makes a good writer.
An acclaimed author, Media Bistro regular, and NYU and the New School teacher, Sue Shapiro is one of the most self-revealing contemporary writers. She’ s also one of the most wickedly funny, compulsively readable, authentic, warm, and thankfully, most self-aware, her style is no-holds-barred honest, edgy, and bracingly refreshing.
