ADIOS, STRUNK AND WHITE is to the book trade business what an independent film is to the Hollywood industry—a creative, sensible approach to writing not hampered by the need to appeal to a wide audience planted with grammar nazis whose sensibilities might be offended, or an academic community’s hubris provoked by the book’s fearless approach to writing. In other words, this is a book that only a small, alternative press could publish, a book secretly praised by large publishing house editors who would have to pass by ADIOS to publish non-offensive, committee-voiced textbooks, reference trade books by establishment columnists, or feel-good, ego-salve books. ADIOS defies all these categories.From the Inside Flap:
Hoffman and Hoffman expose the secret weapons all good writers use—but might not even know they know. Audrey Davidow, Senior Editor, ANGELENO MAGAZINE,
I've been a professional writer for twenty-five years ... my writing style is too often the product of habit. ADIOS provides practical—yet highly creative—advice and counsel." Jim Carnett, Community Relations Director
By using wit, accessible theories and plenty of examples, ADIOS demonstrates that critical thinking and creative writing are not mutually exclusive... Jason Bartulis, English and Philosophy major, University of California, Berkeley
ADIOS approaches writing with such playfulness and creativity that writers, non-writers, and people of all ages would have fun Margaret Gratton, former Orange Coast College President
"I started reading the chapter on Style in the mail room and arrived five minutes late to class— ADIOS is great! I ordered it for my freshman college courses." Allison Lee, College Writing Center Director
With ADIOS, both my academic and creative writing have taken on a new excitement, freeing me to use innovative forms and styles that before I was always afraid to use. Dustin Hopkins, Doctoral student, Claremont Graduate School
