Editor Paul Mandelbaum persuaded our most popular American authors to share their childhood writings and their treasured photographs. What he’s gathered is a fascinating, delightful collection of writing and early snapshots that reveal young minds at work, wrestling with early versions of ideas that were to take hold of their writings in later years. Of course, the young Madeline L’Engle would wonder about space and the meaning of eternity. Of course, Margaret Atwood would question conventional female behavior, arguing for the right to smoke cigars.
First Words is an inspiration to budding writers and enthusiastic teachers, and a revelation for readers everywhere.
