"I have been fortunate enough to experience firsthand Anna Quindlen's generosity of spirit, thoughtfulness, wisdom, and encouragement, writer to writer. It's a wonderful thing, then, to see all of those qualities presented for writers everywhere in Write for Your Life, an invaluable guide to the hows and whys of expression, whether we're aspiring to make art for the world around us or simply to learn more about our own lives. I'm sure that everyone who ever attempts to string a few words, or a lot of words, together to make some sort of sense will find much education and inspiration in this cherishable volume."--Benjamin Dreyer, author of Dreyer's English
