What I Think I Did by Larry Woiwode
Book DescriptionIn What I Think I Did, Larry Woiwode does two things at once: he survives the winter of 1996, the worst in North Dakotas history, and tells the story of his beginnings as a writer, especially the early days at The New Yorker leading up to the publication of his first book, What Im Going to Do, I Think. Act One revolves around the purchase, installation, and feeding of a giant wood-burning furnace to heat Woiwodes farm through that winters record snow and cold. These acts form a central metaphor for exploring the sources of his writers craft and for pulling together the threads of his boyhood and family life. Act Two recounts his university life and early New York days, his beginning a writing career, and his friendship with the young Robert DeNiro. The material on the late William Maxwell, of The New Yorker, is riveting. More than almost any other writer, Woiwode has the capacity to astound with his words. In this memoir, he is at the top of his form.
