How do I describe Jincy Willett's latest book? By saying she is one of the most brilliant and under-appreciated authors alive today? By comparing her snarky wit to that of Dorothy Parker and David Sedaris? By describing my reading process when it comes to a book this good (continually pausing to savor what I just read and keep from racing through too quickly)? Whatever I say won't be enough; Amy Falls Down is a brilliant follow-up to her equally engrossing The Writing Class (stop reading this blurb and go pick up The Writing Class!), and a funny, insightful look into the publishing world and the mind of Amy Gallup, the dark and lovably bitter writer at the heart of it all. Do yourself a favor and read this book! - Lauren
