The readings in "The Writer's Presence "are selected exclusively
for the quality of the writing. Editors Donald McQuade of the
University of California, Berkeley, and Robert Atwan, Series Editor
of "The Best American Essays "scoured hundreds of essays in search
of teachable readings with strong voices and clear points of view.
The result is a blend of classic pieces by favorites like James
Baldwin, Annie Dillard, and Amy Tan; and fresh pieces by rising
stars like Michael Pollan, Geeta Kothari, James McBride, and Daniel
Harris. The voices in "The Writer's Presence "represent different
communities, time periods, levels of difficulty, and fields of
study, and the topics intersect in intriguing and nuanced ways,
giving students the opportunity to think critically and develop
their own voices.
Organized by type of writing and with minimal apparatus," The
Writer's Presence "gives instructors unsurpassed teaching
flexibility. With so many exceptional readings and so many ways to
teach them, the possibilities are endless.
