The Truth About Writing
There's no better writing than what writers write about writing. Each author's perspective, each honest quip, and each unique truth offers insight into the process of self-expression. Curated here in a thoughtful collection, The Truth About Writing brings fresh attention to favorite writers, their thoughts, and their passions. Elevated with a fresh design, a foil-stamped cover, and colorful edge staining, this book of quotes is the perfect gift for novice and professional writers, avid readers, or anyone who loves the written word. Filled with wisdom from some of writing's best and brightest, including old favorites such as J. D. Salinger, Jack Kerouac, Sylvia Plath, and Ray Bradbury, and more contemporary figures such as Roxane Gay, Toni Morrison, Stephen King, and Cheryl Strayed, this book contains more than 380 quotations; many are contradictory, but all are true.

Draft No. 4: On the Writing Process
Draft No. 4 is a master class on the writer's craft. In a series of playful, expertly wrought essays, John McPhee shares insights he has gathered over his career and has refined while teaching at Princeton University, where he has nurtured some of the most esteemed writers of recent decades. McPhee offers definitive guidance in the decisions regarding arrangement, diction, and tone that shape non fiction pieces, and he presents extracts from his work, subjecting them to wry scrutiny. In one essay, he considers the delicate art of getting sources to tell you what they might not otherwise reveal. In another, he discusses how to use flashback to place a bear encounter in a travel narrative while observing that readers are not supposed to notice the structure. It is meant to be about as visible as someone's bones. The result is a vivid depiction of the writing process, from reporting to drafting to revising - and revising, and revising. Draft No. 4 is enriched by multiple diagrams and by personal anecdotes and charming reflections on the life of a writer. McPhee describes his enduring relationships with The New Yorker and Farrar, Straus and Giroux, and recalls his early years at Time magazine. Throughout, Draft No. 4 is enlivened by his keen sense of writing as a way of being in the world.

The Traveling Feast: On the Road and at the Table with My Heroes
On the Road meets Tuesdays with Morrie in this pilgrimage by an American classic (Newsweek) to thank his most important mentors through memorable meals and conversations Some years later, George Plimpton offered to punch me in the nose, recounts Rick Bass, remembering fondly a conversation with the famed Paris Review editor in his office, in which Plimpton, who had been slugged by Archie Moore, offered to connect Bass to a hoary genealogy that would include Ali and Frazier. Lineage has always been important to Bass. Before the punch-that-could-have-been, there was his failed bid to become Eudora Welty's lawn boy, and his first meal with Jim Harrison, during which he could barely bring himself to speak. That supper would eventually inspire this book, Rick's years-long pilgrimage to thank his heroes, and to pass on their legacy of mentorship to the next generation. The poignancy of this journey of thanksgiving is intensified by the place in life at which Bass finds himself. He is nearing sixty, his daughters are now grown, and his wife of more than two decades, who accompanied him on that long-ago dinner with Jim Harrison, has called an end to their marriage. In the wake of this loss, Bass sets out, accompanied by two young writers, to recapture the fire, the hunger, that has faded from his life. The Traveling Feast is a book about meeting one's debts in two directions--sending gratitude to the old exemplars, and a few contemporaries, from Peter Matthiessen to David Sedaris and John Berger to Lorrie Moore, while paying it forward to the next generation of writers, believing in and supporting them as Bass was by his own heroes. Each chapter in this fruitful journey recalls the meeting, the meal, and the history--the writer of the past and of the now. From the disastrous pecan tart to the illegally transported elk meat to the photo op gone awry are many resonant moments. What emerges is a guide not only to writing well but to living well, to sucking out all the marrow of life, in Thoreau's immortal phrase. The Traveling Feast is a chronicling of the old ways, a cross-continent pilgrimage to show gratitude for a legacy of American literature and the writers who made it.
