Carol Shields: The Arts of a Writing Life is a rich collection of essays, memoirs and interviews, written by literary critics on both sides of the Atlantic, and by friends, former teachers, and family. It is edited and introduced by Neil K. Besner, and features a piece by Shields herself on what a writing life means to her. Discussions of all of Shields's works are presented, from her early fiction to her most recent, including her novels and collections of stories, poetry, drama, and nonfiction. The articles range generously in tone and style from the scholarly to the personal, with an essay on her mother by Carol's daughter Anne Giardini, pieces by writers who have worked with Carol, including Blanche Howard and Dave Williamson, and warm essays by friends of Carol's, such as Maggie Dwyer.
