Synopsis: CONNECTING TWENTY PROMINENT AUTHORS WRITE ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT SHAPE OUR LIVES Throughout America, people have discovered the insightful writing and vitality of the immensely popular genre of creative nonfiction, the art form that adapts the literary techniques of fiction writers to the most dramatic real-life stories. Connecting, the second title in Lee Gutkind's creative nonfiction series, is a stirring and forthright collection from writers who have contributed to the success of the genre, their essays and narratives focusing on the impact and legacy of family and friends. Offering readers insight and wisdom as it sparks their memories of remarkable people in their lives, Connecting chronicles the personal and familial relationships of some of America's best-loved authors. Among the writers contributing to this compelling anthology are Joyce Carol Oates, who writes about the end of a friendship and the beginning of adulthood; Alice Hoffman, who reveals how her grandmother's legacy of advice is a testament to her immortality; and Alec Wilkinson, who explores a woman's coping with the murder of her husband. More than just stories of interaction, this book celebrates the people who sculpt and define our lives. Connecting truly fulfills the promise of its title: all readers can find something of their own experiences, recapturing a turning point-an extraordinary coming together with someone important.

From Library Journal: Gutkind (English, Univ. of Pittsburgh) is the editor of Creative Nonfiction, a journal espousing a genre whereby techniques for writing fiction are adapted for narrating dramatic true stories. The concept is reminiscent of the "new journalism" advocated several decades ago by Tom Wolfe et al. This collection consists of 20 contemporary essays about relationships, frequently rooted in memories of families and friends, which are, according to the editor, "predominant shaping forces" and lifelong influences. Noteworthy contributions include B.J. Nelson's account of assisting his mother's suicide, Alice Hoffman's recitation of simple but profound truths couched in her grandmother's humor, and Deborah Tannen's poignant reminiscences of her adored father. Each writer's style is unique and the collection provides a rich variety of compelling stories. Recommended for public and academic libraries.?Denise J. Stankovics, Rockville P.L., Vernon, CT
