This week’s guest
is Lee Abbott. We discuss his new book ALL THINGS, ALL AT ONCE, published by Norton. Mr. Abbott has written six
previous collections of stories, and ALL THINGS, ALL AT ONCE
contains six new stories and eighteen stories from his prior
I believe that with
this book Mr. Abbott has risen to the top of the writers who, God
bless them, continue to write short stories. Several of these
stories, most notably “One of Star Wars, One of Doom’ contain
more emotional power than nearly any novel you’ll read this
There is not a
wasted word in this collection. If you want to learn how to write --
buy this book and read it!
Mr. Abbott received
the Distinguished Professor Award from The Ohio State University in
2004. He has been a cornerstone in
’s Creative Writing Program since 1989. During the interview Mr.
Abbott shares some of his advice for aspiring writers. Enjoy!
