"Writer Carole Burns has put together a book about writing and the writing life, featuring forty-three of our foremost contemporary authors. Reading Off the Page can feel like being at a dinner party with a Pulitzer Prize winner on one side and your favorite detective writer on the other as the third bottle of wine is opened and everyone is beginning to relax." "In interviews on washingtonpost.com, Burns has gotten to the heart of writing by asking such questions as: Can good sex be written? Martin Amis doesn't think so. Are characters based on people the authors know? Richard Ford says no; Russell Banks says sometimes. Did you ever have doubts about your writing? Absolutely, says Michael Cunningham." "These and other authors - including Edward P. Jones, Jhumpa Lahiri, Marisha Pessl, Walter Mosley, Margot Livesy, and Alice McDermott - talk honestly and forthrightly about the art of fiction."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Step aboard a private plane for a breathtaking tour of the immense and varied wilderness of Latin America - lush lands and scenic waterways nearly impossible to experience any other way. Your guide to this remarkable vision is Robert B. Haas, award-winning environmentalist and one of the world's foremost artists in aerial photography. To create this elegant portfolio, Haas covered 14 countries and an astonishing 80 percent of the land mass of Latin America. In magnificent color and exquisite composition, he captures the majesty of the Amazon, the fickleness of rare wildlife in Patagonia, and the incredible topography of untouched lands. Photographs are presented in large double-page panoramas, inviting the viewer to appreciate their abstract qualities and become absorbed in rich details. The aerial perspective gives a generous view of the land below: While large-scale environmental effects may be seen, man's blemishes are mostly diminished when viewed against the vastness of the land. A full-page map highlights countries and specific places photographed."--Publisher's description
