Like many writing teachers, I believe students learn to write in part by reading constructively. This collection compiles writers like Frederick Douglass, Maxine Hong Kingston, Bill Buckley, and Martin Luther King, Jr., to make that more possible. Teachers can arrange readings around themes, topics, time periods, writing styles, or other approaches. And since essays range from only two pages to nearly twenty, students can learn to write for various lengths.
Moreover, the essays are simply readable, even without an assignment at hand. I sometimes grab my copy and flip to random essays when I have minutes to fill, because they give me something to think about, and it's more productive than browsing YouTube. Whether you're a teacher, student, or general reader, this short, sweet collection will give you plenty of ways to enjoy the fine art of contemporary creative nonfiction.
