Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While all the writers in this anthology of contemporary fiction, poetry, and essays are well known, they wouldn't necessarily be identified as Northwestern writers-not even by Northwesterners. What they have in common is their participation in the Pacific Northwest Writers Conferences, both as neophytes and as experienced writers. Part 1 opens with an enchanting detective story by J.A. Jance, in which the handsome detective happens to be a Venetian cat. Short stories and novel excerpts by authors like Craig Lesley, Marjorie Reynolds, Meg Chittenden, and Shawn Wong make this portion a thoroughly enjoyable read. Part 2, "Writing About Writing," includes brief, thoughtful, and sometimes humorous essays and poems by Elizabeth George, Bharti Kirchner, and Terry Brooks. This delightful collection belongs in all regional collections and in larger public libraries.-Mary Margaret Benson, Linfield Coll. Lib., McMinnville, OR Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
