“The essays . . . are all unified by an overwhelming sense of generosity of spirit, of writers offering encouragement, reflection, and introspection . . .” ―Kirkus Reviews
“In a time when everything around me seemed completely out of control, when lives were being cut short and fate seemed especially cruel, I had the need to get to an ending of something. I was desperate to know how things turned out, in fiction if not in life. More than ever, more than anything, I was a writer.” ―Alice Hoffman, from Writers on Writing
“The trial lawyer's job and the novelist's were, in some aspects, shockingly similar. Both involved the reconstruction of experience, usually through many voices. . . . But there the paths deviated. In this arena the universal trumped; there were no prizes for being rarefied or ahead of the times. The trial lawyer who lost the audience also inevitably lost the case.” ―Scott Turow, from Writers on Writing
