Description
A book about writing, and about a warm and productive literary friendship, this story begins in 1973 at the Boston offices of the Atlantic Monthly, where a young freelance writer named Tracy Kidder came looking for an assignment. Richard Todd was the editor who encouraged him, and from that article grew a lifelong association. Before long, Kidder's The Soul of a New Machine, the first book the two worked on together, had won the Pulitzer Prize, but this heady moment was only the beginning of an education in the art of nonfiction. Exploring three major nonfiction forms—narratives, essays, and memoirs—Kidder and Todd draw candidly, sometimes comically, on their mistakes as well as their accomplishments to demonstrate the pragmatic ways in which creative problems get solved. Good Prose stands as a succinct, authoritative, and entertaining arbiter of standards in contemporary writing.

"A gem.... The finer points of creative nonfiction are molded into an inspiring read that will affect the would-be writer as much as Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird or Stephen King's On Writing.... This is a must read for nonfiction writers."—Library Journal
