Oh, after finishing Big Magic I had to read this. I have to confess that I preferred Big Magic. I think in part that is due to Big Magic being about ideas and ways of being and this more of sentimental a memoir. I want to go have a beverage with Richard from Texas. I could totally hang with that guy. I feel bad for Jose — though maybe I shouldn’t. Maybe he got the better end of the deal. Elizabeth — she’s complicated.
