In Praise of what Persists
Harper & Row, 1983 - 289 стор.
In these original essays, leading writers reflect on the influences that have shaped their work. For some, other authors have mattered most: Reynolds Price points to Hemingway, Edward Hoagland to Steinbeck and Bellow, and Cynthia Ozick to Henry James. More often nonliterary factors have marked these writers' fiction, poetry or essays. Family responsibilities dictated the form of storywriter Raymond Carver's work; whereas the brutality of life in El Salvador placed new demands on poet Carolyn Forche. Leonard Michaels writes of his wife's dreams, Richard Hugo of baseball and David Bradley of his minister-father's capacity for belief. Other contributors include Max Apple, John Gardner, John Hawkes and Gilbert Sorrentino.
