Upstairs at the Strand Reviews

A celebratory literary salute to the Strand's vitality. Favorite authors--very few found on bestseller lists--are a common refrain, and the contributors cite a wide variety of work from a diverse selection of essayists, poets, dramatists, memoirists, novelists, and graphic novelists . . . [and] touch on psychotherapy, imagination, and inspiration, as well as techniques, work habits, gender, and race.
Fascinating. . . . This assortment of literary interviews brings together the voices of some our best writers and leaves the reader wanting more.
