About the Author:

Sarah Skwire attended Wesleyan University, where she received a BA (with honors) in English and was a member of the coed literary fraternity Alpha Delta Phi. She later received both her MA and PhD in English Literature from the University of Chicago. In addition to coauthoring WRITING WITH A THESIS (with her father, David Skwire), she has published a variety of creative work as well as articles on subjects such as chronically ill seventeenth-century women poets, medicine in "All's Well That Ends Well," the "German Princess" scandal of the seventeenth century, and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Before coming to Liberty Fund, Sarah taught at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, and at The Ohio State University. Her current research is on the subject of money and early modern poetry.

Review:

"This is an excellent first-year composition text that is organized clearly and solidly introduces students to the process of writing, establishing a firm foundation from which to proceed as student writers."

"It is a concise, entertaining, well focused text for freshman composition, with readings that are appropriate in length for beginning writers."

"I would say that it is beautifully clear, and simple enough to use in a developmental writing course. I like the book for developmental classes because, unlike many other developmental texts, it looks like a college-level textbook, rather than like an elementary-school level workbook."
