Peter Orner's New Book Reminds Us That Reading Is Both Heartbreak And Joy

Peter Orner's new book "Still No Word From You"
Peter Orner's new book "Still No Word From You"

Peter Orner is an award winning writer of novels, short story and essay collections, and he’s a professor of English and Creative Writing at Dartmouth College. His new book is Still No Word From You: Notes on the Margins. It’s an irresistible collection of essays about books, reading, and family. This is one of those books where you get to read a writer writing about reading—from the books they love to the memories certain stories or poems evoke. It's nice to know writers are just like us common readers, falling in love with book after book.
