Probably everyone should read this book

by Jess

That is, I haven’t read it yet. But after you read Mark O’Connell’s interview of David Rees, you’ll understand why I think it’s important that we all read his new book, How to Sharpen Pencils: A Practical & Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening for Writers, Artists, Contractors, Flange Turners, Anglesmiths, & Civil Servants. If you don’t understand, then we probably shouldn’t be friends.
