This collection of 20 gripping, beautifully-written nonfiction narratives is as diverse as the genre "Creative Nonfiction" magazine has helped popularize. Contributions by Phillip Lopate, Brenda Miller, Carolyn Forche, Toi Derricotte, Lauren Slater and others draw inspiration from everything from healthcare to history, and from monarch butterflies to motherhood. Their stories shed light on how we live.
