9780060938222: The Sound on the Page: Great Writers Talk about Style and Voice in Writing

In writing, style matters. Our favorite writers often entertain, move, and inspire us less by what they say than by how they say it.

This wonderfully rich and readable book features interviews with more than 40 of our most important authors discussing their literary style, including:

Dave Barry
Harold Bloom
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer
Bill Bryson
Michael Chabon
Andrei Codrescu
Junot Díaz
Adam Gopnik
Jamaica Kincaid
Michael Kinsley
Elmore Leonard
Elizabeth McCracken
Susan Orlean
