About violinist Joshua Bell which originally began as a stunt What would happen if you put a world class musician outside a Washington DC subway station to play for spare change Would anyone even notice The answer was no Weingarten’s story went viral becoming a widely referenced lesson about life lived The author starts his book by explaining what makes good writing How pompous of him I thought to think he is worthy of proposing a definition He then went on to claim that he himself is a good writer Though I imagine now that he used a word nuanced and less common than goodBut I very uickly noticed that the author does have this right His writing was downright delicious It was delectable It was BRILLIANT Who was this guy So I clicked the little tab at the top of my e reader to return to the title page Gene Weingarten OK storing his name in my memoryBy the end of the book I had the intense desire to read everything the man has ever written I have secret hopes of stumbling upon him through some random but close please G d let it be a close social contact I want to sit there and hear him speak then read of his writing His writing is similar to that of the musical genius of Joshua Bell the Fiddler of the book s title Weingarten s writing tells an emotional story he can play the reader like a violin and carry you through the ebbs and flows of his articles while simultaneously touching something deep inside you and also make you laugh And he does it with exuisite beauty all while teaching you a thing or two This book was enough to make me want to get a subscription to the Washington Post And i don t even live in the USDROOL

    First let me say that Weingarten is an incredible writer However something that he did in the introduction bothered me throughout the book He was a bit too specific about his process so it was difficult for me to really feel the magic of his writing I suppose I prefer to have illusion and distance The discussion of his methods and
