“To Read, To Write, To Review, and Not Yield.”

Hello! My name is Danielle Ranucci.

If you’re seeking great books and hidden classics from around the world, you’ve come to the right place. If you want to discover the secrets of storytelling and craft through “dissecting the masters,” welcome. If you’ve come to follow me on my journey as a writer, I’d love to have you along for the ride!

I post every Tuesday. If today’s not a Tuesday, check these out while you wait:

I read three classics by Hugo, Dickens, and Dostoyevsky.

I reviewed a great work, a greater work, and the greatest work by the criminally-underrated Kyrgyz author Chingiz Aitmatov.

I gained writerly wisdom from reading the first draft (!) of War and Peace.

I published these short stories (so far!)

I’m also on Twitter. You can follow me @DanielleRanucci. Enjoy!
