Praise For Novelists in the New Millennium: Conversations with Writers

"I found the interviews themselves as well as the author introductions to be wonderfully engaging and instructive. I believe a student audience, particularly more advanced college students interested in creative writing, would find the text both accessible and enlightening. As a fiction writer, I found these interviews inspiring, thought provoking, and at times, frankly, quite moving. It was a pleasure to immerse myself in such a wide-ranging conversation in which the writers' insights both overlapped and diverged." - Bryn Chancellor, Assistant Professor of English, University of Montevallo, USA
