In Short by Kitchen

Book Description

Something is going on out there. Almost simultaneously, many of our finest writers are experimenting with a new nonfiction form: brief pieces that are literary and personal rather than informational, complete in themselves, and short very short. Although the form has not had a name until now, the writers who are attracted to it include the known Tim O'Brien, Barry Lopez, Terry Tempest Williams, Michael Ondaatje as well as just-discovered voices in the field of creative nonfiction, a genre that is transforming the essay. Delights and surprises await the reader in this rich gathering of Shorts. From Diane Ackerman's fascination with hummingbirds, to Andrei Codrescu's idiosyncratic view of nostalgia, to Albert Goldbarth's free-wheeling riff on the universe, each Short ranging from several paragraphs to 2,000 words becomes a sharply focused lens on an outer world or an inner sensibility. In Short , reflecting almost every way in which nonfiction can be written, is for all readers (and writers) who thrive on imaginative play and aesthetic satisfaction. Pick up this book; open it up. See if you can resist it. "
