Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Perfect Paperback
St. Germain and Whitford have edited an expansive and wide-ranging collection in Between Song and Story that expertly portrays the contemporary essay's vast possibilities on a continuum of lyric to narrative. An essay does not need to be the dull and dry writing one often fears when hearing the word "essay," but as these four dozen writers prove, it can blend approaches and blur genre lines, creating fun and interesting prose.

By G. on September 13, 2012
Format: Perfect Paperback
Carefully edited by Sheryl St. Germain and Margaret L. Whitford, this anthology marries the narrative and lyrical voice, while writing on the explorations of nature, travel, and place. Best of all, this anthology gives any writer a firmer grounding in both craft and form of the contemporary essay.
