Publisher Comments:

For anyone who has ever feared the best isn't yet to come, Give It All, Give It Now is an inspiration. Originally intended to inspire writers and aspiring writers, Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Annie Dillard's words are empowering and energizing, making this book the perfect gift for anyone undertaking a creative endeavor, including someone beginning a new career, turning over a new leaf, or celebrating a milestone.

The message of this surprising little book is brought to life by the remarkable artistry of Sam Fink. His astonishing calligraphy and full-color illustrations brilliantly complement the passion of Dillard's text.

Featuring an introduction by bestselling author Susan Cheever, this distinctive accordion-page book contains 20 color illustrations and is enclosed in a slip case. It is a gift book for all occasions, one that will be revisited time and again for inspiration and encouragement.

An old friend just sent me this book in the mail. As someone who is often cynical about illustrated words of wisdom in general and advice books for writers in specific, I have to say, I was blown away. I absolutely love this book. A great gift for any writer.

Sometimes the best advice comes in simple sentences. This book will be my daily reading for my writing practice for years to come. I know it.
