Description
Writer/editor Sexton presents a sampling of the views of authors published in Writer's Digest from 1920 to the present. These "legends" include unknowns as well as best-selling authors, e.g., Jack Kerouac (on whether writers are born or made), Stephen King (on the horror story market), Rod Serling (on writing for TV), and Joyce Carol Oates (giving a rare interview). The anthology includes brief author bios, and quirky classifieds and personals appearing in past issues. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
