About this title


Intimate, fascinating photos of famous writers at work, by the photographer who has raised author portraiture to an art form. These are rare glimpses into the mysterious, private world of the writer, putting readers closer to their favorite authors than they have ever been before. Introduction by John Updike. 58 photos.


A dangerous book--deadly to keep on your desk as Jill Krementz's compelling photos of authors at work will lure you back again and again, leaving your own writing untended. This volume cost me two or three good pages as I peeked in on Eudora Welty and read about her anticipated six o'clock bourbon, glanced at books on Tennessee Williams's shelves and wondered if Veronica Chambers ever gets a stiff neck from writing on her laptop like that. The Writer's Desk is a perfect gift for readers, yes, but if you're a writer, well, you've been warned.
