FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgSilk Parachute (Farrar, Straus & Giroux)
Our nation’s premier essayist—the man who helped raise creative non-fiction to an art form—speaks about the intricacy of his writing process. In much the same way that his work on geology incorporates a study of excavation and the earth’s upheavals, John McPhee’s drafts involve the strata and prose formations of a highly demanding stylist.
