Featuring a gathering of more than fifty of contemporary literatures finest voices, this volume will enchant, move, and inspire readers with its tales of The Writing Life. In it, authors divulge professional secrets: how they first discovered they were writers, how they work, how they deal with the myriad frustrations and delights a writers life affords. Culled from ten years of the distinguished Washington Post column of the same name, The Writing Life highlights an eclectic group of luminaries who have wildly varied stories to tell, but who share this singularly beguiling career.

Here are their pleasures as well as their peeves- revelations of their deepest fears- dramas of triumphs and failures- insights into the demands and rewards.Each piece is accompanied by a brief and vivid biography of the writer by Washington Post Book World editor Marie Arana who also provides an introduction to the collection. The result is a rare view from the inside: a close examination of writers concerns about the creative process and the place of literature in America.

For anyone interested in the making of fiction and nonfiction, here is a fascinating vantage on the writers world--an indispensable guide to the craft.
