Lessons In Persuasion: Creative Nonfiction/Pittsburgh Connections (General, Essays, Nonfiction) by Gutkind, Lee

Pittsburgh has always been -- despite its industrial reputation -- a great city in which to be a writer. Its active, close-knit writing community has seen the rise of several luminaries with Pittsburgh connections, such as Annie Dillard and Stewart ONan, and the caliber of Pittsburghs writing community today is better than ever. Lee Gutkind has assembled a reunion of sorts with writers from across the nation, as well as the up-and-coming stars on the local scene -- each of whom has a Pittsburgh connection. Many grew up in the region, others attended college here: all of them have an association with the city. The resulting collection of essays is both gentle and jarring, eclectic and persuasive, covering a range of topics -- from a strippers work ethic to West Virginias famed Matewan shootout, Atlantic Citys Boardwalk before Donald Trump, and the uses of poetry to better understand ones own life. Although Pittsburgh is not the subject of most of the essays, these writers are bound by their affinity for the written word and their collective fondness for Pittsburgh.
