"After Eleanor Wachtel first interviewed Carol Shields in 1987, they became friends. Over the next sixteen years, Eleanor conductednumerous interviews with the Pulitzer Prize-winning author. Their candid, wide-ranging and affectionate conversations trace the arc of Carol's life and career: from her sheltered childhood to her coming of age as a wife, mother and feminist; from her unexpected success as a poet in her late thirties to her emergence as one of the world's foremost fiction writers; from "before" her diagnosis of breast cancer to "after." Always circling back to the fiction, they talk about the redemptive power of literature and Carol's faith in the moments of transcendence - those random illuminations - that transform everyday life." - from the rear cover.. Covers slightly flared, else very good. Signed, without inscription, by Eleanor Wachtel. 16.00
