You. An Anthology of Essays Devoted to the Second Person PDF ebook download As someone who is obsessed with the second person voice, I was so excited to find this book at the AWP Conference in Boston in 2013. I thought, "Brilliant!" Only recently did I have a chance to read the book and, for the most part, it lives up to my expectations. What I liked best about this anthology was 1) the fact that it introduced me to some new writers, whose work I'll definitely be reading further and 2) it confirmed that the second person is NOT gimmicky and can serve so many different purposes.

My favorite pieces in this anthology were the longer ones because I think the second person is difficult to sustain over a longer narrative, and I was more impressed by the authors' use of it. Favorites included: "Apprehension," "Some Really Disgusting Essays about Love," "being [t]here," "A Rock Snob to His Infant Daughter," "The Quiet One," and "The Single Girl's Guide to Remodeling." Really an exceptional collection for lovers of creative nonfiction, the second person, or good writing in general. I'll probably use some of these as examples in a creative writing class one day.
