Works in Progress

Here, in a rare glimpse into the artist’s process, twenty-one writers share inspirations and samples from their short stories, novels, poems, and nonfiction in progress. The writers have given richly from their desktops, and what follows will take you on a tour of Irish pubs, to a TV newscast live from hell, and into the first full-scale biography of Raymond Carver, as well as to many other coming attractions in yet-to-be published works. If you’ve ever wondered how your favorite writers create their works, you’ll find answers in the serendipity, intent, genius, imagination, and paradoxes the artists’ notes and excerpts reveal here.
