Writer's Reader

    The Writer's Reader is an anthology of essays on the art and life of writing by major writers of the past and present. These essays offer a wealth of insights into how writers approach their craft and represent a practical resource as well as a source of inspiration. The writings collected here range from classic to less well-known, historical to contemporary, and include, for example, essays on the vocation of writing by Natalia Ginzburg, John Berger, Edwidge Danticat, Julia Alvarez, and Flannery O'Connor; thoughts on preparing for writing by Roberto Bolano, Henry Miller, Jorge Luis Borges, Ha Jin, and Cynthia Ozick; and essays on the craft of writing by authors such as Italo Calvino, Colm Toibin, Virginia Woolf, Philip Roth, Lydia Davis, David Foster Wallace, and Zadie Smith. Taken together, this collection is a must-read for any student or devotee of writing.
