Book Nook: Several Short Sentences about Writing, by Verlyn Klinkenborg

9780307266347.jpg

Verlyn Klinkenborg is one of my favorite writers. He just published a wonderful book about writing.

In "Several Short Sentences about Writing" Klinkenborg gets down to the basics; our sentences. How do we write them?

When we were children we knew how to tell stories. Then we went to school. That is where we supposedly learned how to write. Klinkenborg suggests that the ways we were taught to write are wrong.

So forget all your notions about writing. Listen to this interview. Then you'll probably want to read the book.
