Every Day A Word Surprises Me

$ 24.95

The art of conjuring a world for the reader is a mysterious one, in part because the creative process often takes place behind closed doors. Every Day a Word Surprises Me swings those doors open, giving us access to the gifted minds responsible for some of history's most celebrated novels, poems, essays, plays, and other brilliant works.

"Every day a word surprises me" is a quotation by the British neurologist and author Oliver Sacks, and this collection is inspired by his legacy of wonder and curiosity. Its pages are filled with surprises and hard-earned advice, communicated with the eloquence and clarity that only the world's finest writers could summon.
