    DescriptionNobody has had a greater effect on writers, teachers, and editors in recent decades than William K. Zinsser. Now, in "Writing Places," he describes more than fifty years of writing and teaching in a series of unusual locations, starting with his first job at the legendary "New York Herald Tribune" and including freelance stints in lonely apartments; a decade as master of Branford College at Yale, where his office was under a carillon; and various quirky offices in New York, one of which had a firepole. Each place taught him valuable lessons that shaped the influential writer and teacher he would become. Written with humor, elegance, and vividly remembered detail about the men and women who kept crossing his life, Zinsser's "Writing Places" will delight anyone who dreams of writing his or her own distinctive story.

    Review quote
    ""Looking back at his personal and professional achievements, Zinsser cannot mask his self-satisfaction---but rather than coming across as narcissistic, his pride proves markedly charming."" ---Publishers Weekly Audio Review
