Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Dillard and Cort Conley present a rich collection of excerpts drawn from the memoirs of 35 extraordinary 20th-century American writers, including contributions by such diverse writers as Margaret Mead, Malcolm X, Maxine Hong Kingston, Loren Eiseley, and Zora Neale Hurston. The selections are chosen for their value as examples of the art of biography as well as for their superb writing.
