About the Author

William Zinsser is a lifelong journalist and nonfiction writer--he began his career on the New York Herald Tribune in 1946--and is also a teacher, best known for his book On Writing Well, a companion held in affection by three generations of writers, reporters, editors, teachers, and students. His 17 other books range from memoir (Writing Places) to travel (American Places), jazz (Mitchell & Ruff), American popular song (Easy to Remember), baseball (Spring Training) and the craft of writing (Writing to Learn). During the 1970s he was at Yale University, where he was master of Branford College and taught the influential nonfiction workshop that would start many writers and editors on their careers. He has taught at the New School, in New York, his hometown, and at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

Reviews

"Zinsser -- who, with On Writing Well, taught a whole lot of us how to set down a clean English sentence -- last year won a National Magazine Award for his Friday web columns in The American Scholar. They're now in a collection that's completely charming, impeccably polished, and Strunk-and-White-ishly brief. He is the youngest 90-year-old you will read this week." -- New York Magazine on "The Writer Who Stayed"
