Publication: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1989, Boston
First edition. Signed by Robert Stone. Fine in dust jacket with very light wear to the extremities. The fourth volume in Zinsser's "Writer's Craft" series, drawing from the Book-of-the-Month Club lectures held at the New York Public Library. Five masters of the political novel (Robert Stone, Charles McCarry, Isabel Allende, Marge Piercy, and Gore Vidal) explain how they are compelled by a sense of social responsiblity to write. All of these writers feel that good political fiction deepens our awareness of the urgencies of our times.
