This book provides guidance to would-be authors of literary non-fiction. It is divided into three parts.
In Part 1, the co-authors explore a range of genres. I found one author’s contributions far more interesting and personally relevant than the other’s. Other readers would no doubt feel differently.
Part 2 provides thoughts and tips from a collection of guest contributors. These were mostly pretty interesting and useful.
Part 3 provides advice on how to go about writing literary non-fiction. It was mainly written in note form. There was little meat in this section, and I ended up skim-reading it.
A great idea for a book, but it could have been executed better.

“…wonderful. Science and history and geography and evolution and culture all tangled up in musings while walking about the moors around Hebden Bridge.”—PZ Myers
