From Booklist ( /gp/feature.html/?docId=1000027801 )
Writers and artists are always asked about their
process, including the crucial question, “How do you do
meaningful creative work while also earning a living?” Currey set
out to amass as much information as he could find about the
routines “brilliant and successful” creators adopted and
followed, and the result is a zestful survey of the working
habits of “some of the greatest minds of the last four hundred
years.” This zealous and judicious volume brims with quotes and
fascinating disclosures about the vagaries of the creative life.
Currey outs the habits of nearly 200 choreographers, comedians,
composers, caricaturists, filmmakers, philosophers, playwrights,
painters, poets, scientists, sculptors, and writers in a dizzying
array that includes Benjamin Franklin, Henri Matisse, Nikola
Tesla, Stephen King, Twyla Tharp, Federico Fellini, Ann Beattie,
Gustav Mahler, and Toni Morrison. Here are early birds and night
owls, the phenomenally rigorous and the nearly dysfunctional.
George Balanchine thought things out while ironing. Maya Angelou
writes sequestered in a “tiny, mean” hotel room. Marilynne
Robinson confesses, “I really am incapable of discipline.”
Currey’s compendium is elucidating and delectable. --Donna Seaman
