Kerri Sakamoto believes Birds Art Life by Kyo Maclear is 'essential reading' for creative people
Kerri Sakamoto is the author of the novel Floating City, the story of a young man who, after surviving Japanese internment in Canada, follows his architectural dreams in Toronto.
"The book I go back to and turn the pages down again and again is Birds Art Life by Kyo Maclear. I think it's essential reading for anyone involved in an artistic, creative endeavour. I think it uncovers these dark facets of self-doubt around the creative process and tilts you toward the light in a beautiful gentle way. It's full of wisdom and insight."
