Wider Giving: Women Writing after a Long Silence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This ground-breaking collection of fiction, poetry, and autobiographical narrative premiers a dozen women writers, born between 1905 and 1932, who made their major commitment to writing after the age of 45. "A Wider Giving" reveals what is involved in starting a writing career late in life. In individual afterword to their works, the writers collected here speak with generous candor about what kept them from writing during their youth and young adulthood, and how they overcame struggling and self-doubt to find audiences.

Synopsis:

Fiction. "It's a wonderful book! The combination of presenting people's work and then giving us the chance to find out about their lives (inner and outer) is inspired. The amount of space given to each writer is respectful, a quite beautiful setting in which each writer shines as herself and also becomes part or a whole. These accounts speak to writers and to women of all ages" -Janet Sternburg.
