Conv. With KY Writers

Conversations With Kentucky Writers

Author: L. Elisabeth Beattie

Whether they left and returned, as Wendell Berry and Bobbie Ann Mason did, or adopted the Commonwealth as home, like James Still, or grew up and left for good, like Michael Dorris, Sue Grafton, and Barbara Kingsolver, these writers have one connection; they share a Kentucky influence on their writing and their lives, an influence that Elizabeth Beattie explores in twenty intimate interviews. Conversation with Kentucky Writers presents some of the state’s ---and the nation’s---best-loved writers at their most insightful and revealing.
