Overview

New York Times Bestseller

"Both deeper and more democratic than The Elements of Style" - Adam Haslett, Financial Times

"A guided tour through some of the most beautiful, arresting sentences in the English language." - Slate

"Like a long periodic sentence, this book rumbles along, gathers steam, shifts gears, and packs a wallop."
--Roy Blount Jr.

In this entertaining and erudite New York Times bestseller, beloved professor Stanley Fish offers both sentence craft and sentence pleasure. Drawing on a wide range of great writers, from Philip Roth to Antonin Scalia to Jane Austen, How to Write a Sentence is much more than a writing manual--it is a spirited love letter to the written word, and a key to understanding how great writing works.
