Overview

Word Carving: The Craft of Literary Journalism collects the works of twelve writers, either up-and-coming or already at the top of their field. Each writes with passion, skill and storytelling expertise. Their words are shaped with all the care and artistry that artist Peter Schuyff summoned in carving the pencils that adorn the book cover.
