Some appreciate fine art; others appreciate fine wines. Stanley Fish appreciates fine sentences. The New York Timescolumnist and world-class professor has long been an aficionado of language: ?I am always on the lookout for sentences that take your breath away, for sentences that make you say, ?Isn't that something? or ?What a sentence!? Like a seasoned sportscaster, Fish marvels at the adeptness of finely crafted sentences and breaks them down into digestible morsels, giving readers an instant play-by-play. In this entertaining and erudite gem, Fish offers both sentence craft and sentence pleasure, skills invaluable to any writer (or reader). His vibrant analysis takes us on a literary tour of great writers throughout history'from William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and Henry James to Martin Luther King Jr., Antonin Scalia, and Elmore Leonard. Indeed, How to Write a Sentenceis both a spirited love letter to the written word and a key to understanding how great writing works; it is a book that will stand the test of time.
