A Lover's Quarrel: On Writing and the Writing Life
A Lover's Quarrel is "...by turns a diary, a reading journal, and a meditation on the creative process." Collecting Thomas Farber's nonfiction on writing and the writing life (including all of Compared to What?), A Lover's Quarrel contains this gifted author's meditation on his vocation. Anatomist, ironist, and moralist, Farber achieves effects of luminous integrity with deceptively simple means. A gift to writers who seek to understand what informs or haunts their metier, A Lover's Quarrel is also for any readers whose lives have been shaped-or saved-by story.
