Review quote

"Thirteen contemporary fiction writers, among the group of nontraditionalists who, since the 1960s have expanded the form and technique of the novel and the short story, respond with candor and detail in these revealing interviews. All thirteen, including William Kennedy, Max Apple, Ann Beattie, and Raymond Carver, allow themselves to be probed deeply about their writing habits, needs, sensibilities, and influences. Interviews with writers are a dime a dozen, but this group sets high standards for meaningful interchange." -- ALA Booklistshow more
