Roger Rosenblatt’s 19th book — The Story I Am: Mad About the Writing Life — was published April 7 from Turtle Point Press.
Publisher’s Weekly said, “By turns funny, acerbic, and wistful, this collection will provide Rosenblatt’s many fans with much to delight them.”
The collection of short pieces includes excerpts from Rosenblatt’s novels and memoirs (some previously unpublished) and selections of his essays for Time, the New York Review of Books, the Washington Post, and other publications.
A Stony Brook University Distinguished Professor of English and Writing, Rosenblatt’s work has been published in 14 languages. He is the author of five New York Times Notable Books of the Year, and three Times bestsellers, including the memoirs Kayak Morning, The Boy Detective, and Making Toast, along with Lapham Rising, Beet, Thomas Murphy and The Book of Love.
