A One Percent Margin of Error
ProQuest, 2007 - 149 pages
Hollywood actress and best-selling author Carrie Fisher once wrote, "If my life weren't funny, it would just be true, and that's unacceptable." This collection of creative non-fiction essays, titled A One Percent Margin of Error, embraces the humor found in almost every situation that I have come across and chosen to write about. This humor needs to live inside me when I write, as it eventually manifests itself as humility, honesty, and even a touch of self-deprecation, and the acknowledgement that I don't always have the right answer, or sometimes, even an answer at all.
