THE WRITER WHO STAYED
Adapted from "Zinsser on Friday," "The American Scholar"'s National Magazine Award-Winning Essay Series
For nineteen months William Zinsser, author of the best-selling "On Writing Well" and many other books, wrote a weekly column for the website of the "American Scholar" magazine. This cornucopia was devoted mainly to culture and the arts, the craft of writing, and travels to remote places, along with the movies, American popular song, email, multitasking, baseball, Central Park, Tina Brown, Pauline Kael, Steve Martin, and other complications of modern life. Written with elegance and humor, these pieces are now collected in "The Writer Who Stayed."
"If you value vintage journalism of an old-fashioned vividness and integrity please, please read this book."--"Wall Street Journal"
"Our 'endlessly supple' English language will, Zinsser says, 'do anything you ask it to do, if you treat it well. Try it and see.' Try him and see craftsmanship."--George F. Will
"Zinsser--who, with "On Writing Well," taught a whole lot of us how to set down a clean English sentence--last year won a National Magazine Award for his Friday web columns in "The American Scholar." They're now in a collection that's completely charming, impeccably polished, and Strunk-and-White-ishly brief. He's the youngest 90-year-old you'll read this week."--"New York Magazine"
