Tracy Kidder - Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction

Tuesday, January 22, 2013 - 7:00pm
Good Prose ($26.00) explores three major nonfiction forms: narratives, essays, and memoirs. Co-authors Tracy Kidder and Richard Todd draw candidly, sometimes comically, on their own experience—their mistakes as well as accomplishments—to demonstrate the pragmatic ways in which creative problems get solved.Like Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style, this book is a succinct, authoritative, and entertaining arbiter of standards in contemporary writing, offering guidance for the professional writer and the beginner alike. 

Tracy Kidder graduated from Harvard and studied at the University of Iowa. He has won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, and many other literary prizes. The author of Strength in What Remains, My Detachment, Mountains Beyond Mountains, Home Town, Old Friends, Among Schoolchildren, House, and The Soul of a New Machine, Tracy Kidder lives in Massachusetts.
