Being a Writer: Advice, Musings, Essays and Experiences From the World's Greatest Authors is an inspiring anthology of hard-won practical advice from some of the world's greatest authors musing on the art of writing and how they came to define themselves as writers. Join its editors, the authors Helen Gordon and Travis Elborough, as they discuss the particular highs and lows of the writing life from the time of Samuel Johnson and Grub Street to the age of silicon roundabout and Lorrie Moore in twenty-first-century Wisconsin, the contributors range from the canon to contemporary, covering more than 250 years, and come from all over the world. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this stunning anthology explores the compulsion to write, with advice about the whole messy business of writing literature and what it takes to be a writer.
