"Crystal clear, bracing as ice water, Escaping Into the Open should be read by all scribblers regardless of material success."
--Rita Mae Brown

"This is a really good book."

Bestselling, award-winning novelist Elizabeth Berg knows a thing or two about writing, having graced the world with wonderful works of fiction including Talk Before Sleep, The Year of Pleasures, and the acclaimed Oprah Book Club Selection, Open House. With Escaping Into the Open, she offers an inspiring, eminently entertaining, and delightfully practical handbook on the joys, challenges, and creative possibilities inherent in the writing life. Now revised with new material--a classic in the vein of Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg and Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird--Elizabeth Berg's Escaping Into the Open is an indispensable guide for any aspiring storyteller.
