Writing Places: The Life Journey of a Writer and Teacher (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
"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."
