From Old Notebooks begins as simply a writer's list of ideas—ideas for stories, films, novels, essays—but soon the writer's attention turns toward meditations on family, fear of death, literary fame, drug use, teaching, terrorism, pornography, and the weather. The book's seemingly disparate concerns coalesce to depict a writer writing his way through life and his first book at one and the same time.
