"[A] sterling collection of essays…Twenty terrific women writers reveal a little something about their work, and about themselves…Janet Sternburg has done a wonderful job. This book is a gift in every possible way." —Carolyn See, Los Angeles Times

The Writer on Her Work I, a ground-breaking collection of personal essays about what it means to be a woman who writes, was published to high praise in 1980. Now, in a second volume, Janet Sternburg has again commissioned essays from novelists, poets, and nonfiction writers from the United States and abroad.
