Of Writing Down the Bones, Goldberg has said, “What have I learned about writing over these thirty years? I’ve written fourteen books, and it’s the practice in Bones that is the foundation, sustaining and building my writing voice, that keeps me honest, teaches me how to endure the hard times and how to drop below discursive thinking, to taste the real meat of our minds and the life around us.”
