Chock-full of treasures from a diverse field of writers

"By turns gossipy, angry, hilarious and informative, Gutkind's essay alone is worth the price of this book. Lucky for us, the anthology also is chock-full of treasures from a diverse field of writers, including Toi Derricotte, Gordon Lish, and Carolyn Forche. The subject matter … ranges from butterflies to Dick Cheney to a parent coping with the death of his child. That extraordinary range of subject matter is what keeps creative nonfiction–and Creative Nonfiction–so compelling."
