Writing on writing: New collection of Vanity Fair essays out now!

If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for short, interesting texts to complement the assigned readings in our course9780143111764s. This essay collection is perfect for that purpose.

Previously published in Vanity Fair magazine, these essays highlight the breadth and depth of the magazine’s commitment to the literary life. The gimmick is simple but effective: assign one writer to examine the life or work of another and read what happens. The essays are a glorious, eclectic mix of styles, lengths, and vantage points, so every reader will find something to enjoy. This is a collection to be dipped into, savored, and shared with students, who will benefit both from the content and the style of the pieces.
