In this second volume of original essays from the popular New York Times column, Writers on Writing compiles advice from revered authors such as Diane Ackerman, Margaret Atwood, Frank Conroy, Mary Karr, and Amy Tan. With an introduction by Jane Smiley, this collection includes essays that range from thoughtful and serious reflections, to wry and hilarious advice, offering a glimpse into the challenges and rewards of the creative process. “How to read this book?” asks Smiley. “Read it like eavesdropping or like twisting the knob on an old radio and tuning in stations from far and wide. Read it like an explorer, then wander among the authors’ other works.”
