Sug­gested Reading: Draft No. 4: On the Writ­ing Process (Far­rar, Straus and Giroux, Septem­ber) by John McPhee

Poets and Writers - - The Literary Life -

The au­thor of more than thirty books of non­fic­tion as well as more than a hun­dred pieces of jour­nal­ism pub­lished in the New Yorker over the past fifty years of­fers a col­lec­tion of es­says on the writer’s craft in which he shares mem­o­ries and tips of the trade gleaned through­out his dis­tin­guished ca­reer as a writer and an in­struc­tor at Prince­ton Univer­sity. McPhee uses ex­cerpts of his work to pro­vide lessons on cru­cial de­ci­sions re­gard­ing struc­ture, dic­tion, and tone that shape well-writ­ten non­fic­tion pieces.
