"Anyone interested in the lives of present-day American writers, and particulary writers who come from the South or take the south as their subject, will find the interviews compiled in Allen Mendenhall's Writers on Writing an unalloyed pleasure...."

-Wilfred M. McClay, G.T. and Libby Blankenship Chair in the History of Liberty, University of Oklahoma

"Writers on Writing takes us on a delightful stroll through recent Southern literature, with Allen Mendenhall as our expert guide. A polymath who wears his learning well, Mendenhall poses questions both inviting and incisive. He encourages authors to take him--and therrefore, us--into their confidence, providing valuable insights into dozens of books and sensibilities that brought them into being."

-Gilbert Allen, Professor Emeritus, Furman University, Department of English

"The interviews in Writers on Writing are not formulaic Q & As, but organic conversations with a diverse group of writers, including numerous award-winning, and New York Times bestselling authors. Mendenhall shows us more than the art and craft of these writers--a group that includes novelists, historians, memoirists, social commentators, essayist, poets, and writers of mystery, legal, and crime thrillers, and literary criticism. He reveals their hearts."

-Susan Cushman, editor of Southern Writers on Writing
