A remarkable series of lectures on the art of creating effective
nonfiction by one of the 20th century's most profound writers and
thinkers--now available for the first time in print. Culled from
sixteen informal lectures Ayn Rand delivered to a select audience
in the late 1960s, this remarkable work offers indispensable
guidance to the aspiring writer of nonfiction while providing
readers with a fascinating discourse on art and creation. Based on
the concept that the ability to create quality nonfiction is a
skill that can be learned like any other, The Art of Nonfiction
takes readers through the writing process, step-by-step, providing
insightful observations and invaluable techniques along the way. In
these edited transcripts, Rand discusses the psychological aspects
of writing, and the different roles played by the conscious and
unconscious minds. From choosing a subject to polishing a draft to
mastering an individual writing style--for authors of theoretical
works or those leaning toward journalistic reporting--this crucial
resource introduces the words and ideas of one of our most enduring
authors to a new generation.
