The Muse upon My Shoulder: Discussions of the Creative Process

Synopsis

"In this volume, an exceptionally diverse group of writers discuss the creative process. They include famous and less well-known writers of fiction, poetry, and drama, including David Trinidad, William Stafford, E. L. Doctorow, Stanley Elkin, Mary Gordon, Jay McInerney, and Beth Henley. They entertain self-revealing questions about their status as writers, their inspiration to write, and their relationship to an audience. The conversational form of the interview allows for candid answers readers rarely hear to questions that seldom are answered. In the last chapter, the interviewers describe the steps involved when they conduct interviews. Among other things, they describe the gestures that go into constructing an environment that will encourage someone to speak freely." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
