About the book:

Todays most celebrated writers explore the literary life in a second collection of inspiring and eye-opening essays

In a second volume of original essays drawn from the long-running New York Times column, Writers on Writing brings together another group of contemporary literatures finest voices to muse on the challenges and gifts of language and creativity.

William Kennedy talks about the intersecting lives of real and imagined Albany politics; Susan Isaacs reveals her nostalgia for a long-retired protaganist; and Elmore Leonard offers pithy rules for letting the writing, and not the writer, take charge. Writers on Writing offers an uncommon and revealing view of the writers world.
