How to Write a Sentence : And How to Read One Paperback / softback


New York Times Bestseller"Both deeper and more democratic than The Elements of Style" - Adam Haslett, Financial Times"A guided tour through some of the most beautiful, arresting sentences in the English language." - Slate"Like a long periodic sentence, this book rumbles along, gathers steam, shifts gears, and packs a wallop." -Roy Blount Jr. In this entertaining and erudite New York Times bestseller, beloved professor Stanley Fish offers both sentence craft and sentence pleasure.

Drawing on a wide range of great writers, from Philip Roth to Antonin Scalia to Jane Austen, How to Write a Sentence is much more than a writing manual-it is a spirited love letter to the written word, and a key to understanding how great writing works.
