About this title

Synopsis:

In these highly personal essays and powerful tales that verge on memoir, Merrill Joan Gerber opens to us her life and work as a writer. She is candid and unflinching in revealing the truths and inventions of a writer’s vision and the use of life as the raw material of art. Her personal essays range widely, from the mysteries of love and marriage to painful encounters with suicides and family deaths.

Gerber writes of her apprenticeships with celebrated writing teachers Andrew Lytle and Wallace Stegner and recounts her ghostly (and ghastly) experiences during a month at Yaddo, the famous retreat for artists. Gerber includes three pieces in the book—originally published as stories—but which blur the line between fiction and memoir, demonstrating Gerber’s contention that the deepest secrets in life beget the most passionate fictions.

From the Back Cover:

"One reads Gerber headlong, driven to turn her pages as rapidly as possible, leaping toward resolution."-Cynthia Ozick, author of The Puttermesser Papers and Quarrel & Quandary

"These pieces move back and forth across the boundary between memoir and fiction. Vivid and gripping, they offer memorable characters and events. One narrative moves deeply into a marital relationship-suggesting a kind of paradigm for the systole and diastole of marriage that I found profoundly moving. And troubling. And satisfying."-Janet Burstein, Drew University
