Snoopy sits atop his dog house, banging out stories on a manual typewriter. Usually they begin "It was a dark and stormy night..." Always they're rejected. In Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life - a wonderful gift for writers - a roundup of 30 famous writers and entertainers respond in short essays to their favorite Snoopy "at the typewriter" strip. Each essay focuses on how the strip presents an aspect of writing life - getting started, getting rejected, searching for new ideas, and more - everything that beginners and professional writers deal with on a daily basis. The essays are light and sometimes humorous, but all of them offer insight and inspiration for writers working at any level. The book presents a powerful lineup of contributors, including: Ray Bradbury; Julia Child; Sue Grafton; Elmore Leonard; And the Beagle himself! William F. Buckley, Jr.; Elizabeth George; Evan Hunter; Danielle Steel; Editors Barnaby Conrad and Monte Schulz (son of the late Charles Schulz) provide introductory chapters that address the writing life and how Snoopy's experience - his tenacity and resilience - can inspire us all.

About the Author:

Monte Schulz is the son of "Peanuts" creator Charles Schulz. Bamaby Conrad is a writer of fiction and nonfiction.

From Library Journal:

Using the many Snoopy "at the typewriter" strips as jumping-off points, 30 famous writers as disparate as Ray Bradbury, Elmore Leonard, Budd Shulberg, Dominick Dunne, Danielle Steele, and Sue Grafton have written short pep talks, amusing anecdotes, or just useful advice to would-be writers based on their own experiences. Witty and charming, the essays offer much creative and practical wisdom. But the highlight of the book is the touching foreword by Charles Schulz's son, Monte, who offers some striking insights into his father's life, giving the reader a glimpse of the legendary cartoonist as a reader as well as a writer. Editor Conrad (The Complete Guide to Writing Fiction) also contributes an insightful introduction to this collection, which is an inspiring homage to Schulz that will appeal to all writers and aspiring writers as well as to fans of the late Peanuts creator. Highly recommended.
