Publisher Comments
“Fascinating. . . . This assortment of literary interviews brings together the voices of some our best writers and leaves the reader wanting more.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A celebratory literary salute to the Strand’s vitality. Favorite authors―very few found on bestseller lists―are a common refrain, and the contributors cite a wide variety of work from a diverse selection of essayists, poets, dramatists, memoirists, novelists, and graphic novelists . . . [and] touch on psychotherapy, imagination, and inspiration, as well as techniques, work habits, gender, and race.” (Kirkus)
