Description:

Shakespeare wrote with a feather quill and ink; Emily Dickinson wrote with a fountain pen; Isaac Bashevis Singer wrote on a Yiddish typewriter. But what did such writers do when they weren't writing? What did Jane Austen eat for breakfast? What could make Mark Twain throw his shirts out the window? Why would Zora Neale Hurston punch a fellow elevator passenger? Lives of the Writers tells all that and more, including plenty about writing, how these writers viewed the world of literature--and how their neighbors viewed them.     In this offering from the highly praised Lives Of . . . series, Kathleen Krull and Kathryn Hewitt offer the inside schoop on twenty literary luminaries. Even famous writers are real people with odd habits, secret hopes, dismal failures, and wild successes; Lives of the Writers reveals it all with wit and style.
