Sailing the Inland Sea by Susan Neville
Book DescriptionCalling on the image of the Midwest's vanished inland sea, Susan Neville has written a compelling collection of essays that ponder writing and the "landlocked imagination." The essays range from interviews with Indiana writers Kurt Vonnegut, Scott Sanders, Marguerite Young, and others, to discussions on techniques grounded in a Midwestern sensibility. As director of Butler University's Visiting Writers Series, Neville has had the rare opportunity to converse with such literary giants as Salman Rushdie, Ray Bradbury, and Toni Morrison, and some of those exchanges have been incorporated into this exciting new collection.

Books By Author Susan Neville
Invention of Flight, Paperback (April 2010)
Susan Neville combines a gift for language with a subtle eye and a fine instinct for character. Her characters and her settings are, most of them, midwestern, and her stories stick in the reader's mind long after she has read them."
Iconography, Paperback (September 2003)
When the author enrolls in an icon-painting class in the cellar of an Indianapolis monastery, she begins a journey into a fascinating hidden world where saints are fabricated of mineral and wood, yolk and blood, earth and time. This title helps to follow her sometimes painful attempts to reveal the truth and discover the mystery of her existence.
