There’s no better writing than what writers write about writing. Each author’s perspective, each honest quip, and each unique truth offers insight into the process of self-expression. Curated here in a thoughtful collection, The Truth About Writing brings fresh attention to favorite writers, their thoughts, and their passions. Elevated with a fresh design, a foil-stamped cover, and colorful edge staining, this book of quotes is the perfect gift for novice and professional writers, avid readers, or anyone who loves the written word.
Filled with wisdom from some of writing’s best and brightest, including old favorites such as J. D. Salinger, Jack Kerouac, Sylvia Plath, and Ray Bradbury, and more contemporary figures such as Roxane Gay, Toni Morrison, Stephen King, and Cheryl Strayed, this book contains more than 380 quotations; many are contradictory, but all are true.
