  • About the Author

    X. J. Kennedy, after graduation from Seton Hall and Columbia, became a journalist second class in the Navy (“Actually, I was pretty eighth class”). His poems, some published in the New Yorker, were first collected in Nude Descending a Staircase (1961). Since then he has written six more collections, several widely adopted literature and writing textbooks, and seventeen books for children, including two novels. He has taught at Michigan, North Carolina (Greensboro), California (Irvine), Wellesley, Tufts, and Leeds. Cited in Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations and reprinted in some 200 anthologies, his verse has brought him a Guggenheim fellowship, a Lamont Award, a Los Angeles Times Book Prize, an award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, an Aiken-Taylor prize, the Robert Frost Medal of the Poetry Society of America, and the Award for Poetry for Children from the National Council of Teachers of English. He now lives in Lexington, Massachusetts, where he and his wife Dorothy have collaborated on four books and five children.

     

    Dana Gioia is a poet, critic, and teacher. Born in Los Angeles of Italian and Mexican ancestry, he attended Stanford and Harvard before taking a detour into business. (“Not many poets have a Stanford M.B.A., thank goodness!”) After years of writing and reading late in the evenings after work, he quit a vice presidency to write and teach. He has published three collections of poetry, Daily Horoscope (1986), The Gods of Winter (1991), and Interrogations at Noon (2001), which won the American Book Award; an opera libretto, Nosferatu (2001); and three critical volumes, including Can Poetry Matter? (1992), an influential study of poetry’s place in contemporary America. Gioia has taught at Johns Hopkins, Sarah Lawrence, Wesleyan (Connecticut), Mercer, and Colorado College.

     

    He is also the co-founder of the summer poetry conference at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. From 2003-2009 he served as Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. At the NEA he created the largest literary programs in federal history, including Shakespeare in American Communities and Poetry Out Loud, the national high school poetry recitation contest. He also led the campaign to restore active and engaged literary reading by creating The Big Read, which has helped reverse a quarter century of decline in U.S. reading. He currently divides his time between Washington, D.C. and Santa Rosa, California, living with his wife Mary, their two sons, and two uncontrollable cats.

    Not about houses

    The houses on the cover are deceptive. It''s not a book about houses at all. It''s about words or something.

    Arrived in good condition with very slight exterior damage
    Reviewed in the United States on July 28, 2017
    Purchased for a college course. Arrived in good condition with very slight exterior damage. The pages are incredibly thin and tear fairly easily. Found myself reading content that wasn''t assigned in class, and I didn''t sell this one back because I liked the short stories.

    It''s a text book, so many of the normal review questions are hard to answer 2 weeks into the class. Whatever the case, this is simply a compilation assembled to illustrate points the authors are trying to make regarding various facets of fiction writing.
    It''s horribly overpriced for such a flimsy paperback. I paid $51 for a ratty used copy, becaused $115 MSRP for a new one is highway robbery. Even "discounted" to just under $90 is ridiculous. Frankly, $51 was too much. This is at best a $35 to $40 book (new) outside the rarified air of academia. If they are going to charge so much perhaps a more durable binding and better paper might be worth considering. Of course they would probably want $200 plus for it then. Yeah, I know, most college books are overpriced, it''s the nature of the business. This one seems to have the least value for money of any texts I''ve purchased so far. $80 for a paperback sucks a bit less if it actually seems like they used quality materials. I would point out that there are good quality hardbound texts for similar money.

    Horrible Quality
    Reviewed in the United States on January 19, 2020
    The book is barely held together. There''s tape completely covering the outside and part of the table of contents fell out as soon as I received the book, which I had to tape back in. There''s also a ton of writing and highlighted areas. Disappointed.
