In You Don’t Say Edward Cifelli collects 68 previously published essays and “fugitive thoughts.” It is a miscellany that records some of the things, large and small, that have claimed his attention between 2012 and 2017, between his 70th and 75th birthdays—and his attention ranges far and wide, from Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama to Joe Maddon and the Ronettes; from Henry David Thoreau and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to Keurig coffee makers and New York Times crossword puzzles; from the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the discovery of the “God Particle” to lottery statistics and lost golf balls. Part of the fun of the book is its crazy quilt of the important and unimportant—and how they look after Cifelli stops to think about them.From “Whining Poets”: “They attend each other’s readings and pretend there is a place for them someplace else in the literate universe. That is delusional, but it’s a fiction they all hold on to—just as they hold on to the idea that they are under-read and under-appreciated. Their usual posture is a sort of hang-dog look of disappointment and loft y superiority, a difficult combination that they manage with the same irritating panache observed in perpetually misunderstood teenagers.”

Xenophon's Memoirs of Socrates: With the Defence of Socrates, Before His Judges (Classic Reprint)
Interest in travel writing has grown rapidly within the disciplines of postcolonial and cultural studies; however, recent scholarship has failed to place travel writing within the larger literary tradition. Writing Travel assembles a superb collection of essays that demonstrate how travel attempts to reconfigure the world and, in so doing, to become a metaphor for imagination, subjectivity, and representation itself.Examining a broad range of texts and travellers from across the world, the contributors discuss canonical authors such as Homer, Goethe, and Baudelaire, alongside lesser known writers such as Theodor Herzl, Hans Erich Nossack, and William Gibson. This theoretically rich volume draws connections between travel and narrative, and provides powerful insights into the relationship between travel and the spoken act of storytelling, as well as the more ambivalent act of story writing.An engaging collection of essays by first-rate scholars, Writing Travel is an illuminating exploration of the history of travel writing, its influence on other literary genres, and the origins of narrative.
The first book for writers that explores the emotional side of writing--dealing with everything from envy to guilt to the dreaded writer's block.
