From the Back Cover
William Zinsser's classic bestseller, On Writing Well, has inspired three generations of writers, journalists and students. In Writing Places, he delightfully recalls the many colorful and amusing locations where he has worked and taught.
Written with humor and with gratitude for a lifetime of change and self-discovery, relishing a rich cast of characters who peopled his world from Yale's president Kingman Brewster to actor Peter Sellers to gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson Writing Places never loses its anchor in the craft of writing: how it's taught, learned and brought to a high level of enjoyment. "
