Mentor by Tom Grimes (H)

$19.95

RETAIL PRICE $24.95 OUR PRICE $19.95 - A chance encounter between two writers, one young, one older, develops into a wonderful friendship neither expected. Frank Conroy, author of the classic memoir Stop-Time, meets Tom Grimes, an aspiring writer and an applicant to the Iowa Writers' Workshop, which Conroy directs. First as teacher and student--and gradually as friends-their lives become entwined, and through both successes and disappointments, their bond deepens.
Exquisitely written, Mentor is an honest and heartbreaking exploration of the writing life and the role of a very important teacher.
Tom Grimes directs the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Texas State University. He is the author of five novels, including Season's End, City of God, and Redemption Song, and the editor of The Workshop: Seven Decades of Fiction from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. His work has been selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year, and he has twice been a finalist for the PEN/Nelson Algren Award.
