"As a writer Elizabeth Berg hit the ground running. Her very helpful advice to would-be authors is the equivalent of a good pair of track shoes. She knows how the publishing industry works, how sentences work, and why writers need to answer only to themselves."--C. Michael Curtis, senior editor, Atlantic Monthly
"Elizabeth Berg's writing exercises are wonderfully inventive. They capture the play and pleasures of writing. Her book is an insightful guide."--Ronna Wineberg Blaser, president, board of directors, The Tennessee Writers Alliance
"This is a really good book . . . anyone who ever needs to write anything will find bright shards of useful stuff here."--Booklist
"Elizabeth Berg has shown herself to be an author of astonishing talent. What is even more astonishing is the generosity with which she now shares her insights and wisdom on the process of writing."--Mary Mitchell, writing instructor, The Adult Learning Center, Framinghams Massachusetts
"Crystal clear, bracing as icewater, Escaping into the Open should be read by all scribblers regardless of material success."--Rita Mae Brown
