Reader Nanette Savard meets every requirement of this nonfiction work by novelist and critic Francine Prose. Savard's voice captures the author's tone of authority as she sets forth her dual mission: "to help passionate readers and would-be writers understand how a writer reads." Savard's crisp syllables highlight Prose's literary analysis, and her rhythms project Prose's love of language. Personal anecdotes from Prose include her reflections on a twelfth-grade teacher who taught her "close reading," a formative practice that changed her forever. Plenty of literary excerpts are included--Savard's pauses eloquently capture Prose's thoughtful quality as she discusses them. S.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
