The Writer on Her Work: New Essays in New Territory
W. W. Norton & Company, 1992 - Fiction - 240 pages
"With its many voices, images and aphorisms--from those of Maxine Kumin to Luisa Valenzuela, from Rita Dove to Elizabeth Jolley--the book is a pleasure and a faithful companion".--Publishers Weekly.
