Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here we see the skill of some of Americas greatest writers laid bare by a fellow craftsman, making On Writers and Writing essential reading for anyone interested in American literature.

A consummate teacher, Gardner examines contemporary writers-Bellow, Nabokov, Roth, Cheever, Woiwode, Oates, Updike, and other major authors-with the same critical gut generous eye with which he graded his students' writing assignments.
