Anmeldelser

«Dale Salwak has created a collection that should be required reading for all prospective teachers. Elegant praise for their teachers comes from Jay Parini, Margaret Drabble, Dana Gioia, and many others.»

Linda Wagner-Martin, Hanes Professor, University of North Carolina, USA

«There is no model, no formula. Chance encounters, dusty school teachers, maverick professors, illiterate grandfathers. Twenty authors ruminate on the relationships that lit the first steps of their careers. Nothing could be more fascinating.»

Tim Parks, author of 'Where I'm Reading From, the Changing World of Books'

«Writers and their Teachers offers a thought-provoking read to anyone interested in understanding the myriad ways a young writer's wish to write can be massaged from dormancy, their capacities strengthened, by encountering the "right" teacher in their youth. The best among the 20 essays describe the enhanced mastery of writing made possible when two people pay careful attention to each other.»

Janna Malamud Smith, author of 'An Absorbing Errand: How Artists and Craftsmen Make Their Way to Ma

«Celebrates how some of the leading writers of our time have been shaped by inspirational teachers.»

Choice

«The gifts are different — legitimacy, confidence, the value of hard work, skepticism, provocation — but the gratitude is the same. A collection of moving tributes to the often mysterious figures who have, firmly, gently, and at times unconsciously made literature seem possible.»

Stacy Schiff, author of 'The Revolutionary: Samuel Adams'

«All the essays deserve high praise. Seldom does one encounter such a wealth of good prose within the covers of a single volume. The book is itself inspirational, teaching much about writing and teaching, thinking and living.»

Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, The Irish Times

«The best are excellent, memorializing through striking detail teachers – some exceptionally charismatic – who understood their pupils as well as they did the importance of all they were passing on to them.»

Catharine Morris, Times Literary Supplement

«I found myself pleasurably immersed in the recollections of a network of individuals for whom writing became not only the centre of their universe but a necessary condition for living. ... [A] delightfully entertaining collection.»
