Abstract:

"This volume traces the Iowa Writers' Workshop's decade-by-decade evolution from the 1930s through the present. Via an introductory essay by editor Tom Grimes on the nature of genius and whether creative writing can be taught, and original introductions to the forty-three stories, many by the writers themselves, we get a sense of the importance of "The Workshop," as it became known, to the evolution of American writing itself. The forty-three stories at the heart of this book have been carefully selected to, in the editor's words, "attest to the perpetual summer, abundance and variety of Iowa's achievements, proof of its lush resonance in American culture.""--Jacket.
