Synopsis:

“William Zinsser turns his zest, warmth and curiosity—his sharp but forgiving eye—on his own story. The result is lively, funny and moving, especially for anyone who cares about art and the business of writing well.”
—Evan Thomas, Newsweek

 

In Writing Places, William Zinsser—the author of On Writing Well, the bestseller that has inspired two generations of writers, journalists, and students—recalls the many colorful and instructive places where he has worked and taught. Gay Talese, author of A Writer’s Life, calls Writing Places, “Wonderful,” while the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette praises this unique memoir for possessing “all the qualities that Zinsser believes matter most in good writing—clarity, brevity, simplicity and humanity.”

From the Back Cover:

William Zinsser's classic bestseller, On Writing Well, has inspired three generations of writers, journalists and students. In Writing Places, he delightfully recalls the many colorful and amusing locations where he has worked and taught.

Written with humor and with gratitude for a lifetime of change and self-discovery, relishing a rich cast of characters who peopled his world—from Yale's president Kingman Brewster to actor Peter Sellers to gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson—Writing Places never loses its anchor in the craft of writing: how it's taught, learned and brought to a high level of enjoyment.
