012: Advice on the Writing Life from “Bukowski in a Sundress” author Kim Addonizio

Get some real life advice about being a working writer from award-winning poet and novelist Kim Addonizio’s new memoir, Bukowski in a Sundress: Confessions from a Writing Life, is a collection of essays that chronicles the joys and indignities in the life of a writer wandering through middle age.

Addonizio vividly captures moments of inspiration at the writing desk (or bed) and adventures on the road — from a champagne-and-vodka-fueled one-night stand at a writing conference to sparsely attended readings at remote Midwestern colleges. Her first foray into memoir is a raw and uncensored depiction of her life as a writer – the good, the bad, and the hilarious.

A finalist for the National Book Award, Kim has also received a Guggenheim Fellowship, two NEA Fellowships, and a Pushcart Prize. She divides her time between living in Oakland, California, and New York City.
