Críticas:

"Verlyn Klinkenborg has written an exceptionally interesting and useful book about writing. There have been good books on grammar and style, some classics, but none to compare to this one for understanding where sentences come from in the first place, where their vitality is found, and what distinguishes their energy, their authenticity, and their prospects for life after birth--that is, the art of revision. This book's long future will be a testament to its author's principles." -Tom McGuane
"This is a very interesting little book about writing. Modest. Learned. Good-natured. Direct and sympathetic to its readers. You don't even have to read it front to back (probably you couldn't, anyway). You can just open it anywhere--as I did--and take away something useful." -Richard Ford
"Verlyn Klinkenborg's "Several Short Sentences About Writing" is an invaluable book for anyone who wants to write well. The simple clarity and logic that he brings to the page is mesmerizing and inspiring--the ultimate cleansing process that leaves you wanting a fresh piece of paper and a brand new start. It is a book filled with great advice and wisdom. And it's fun, too!" -Jill McCorkle
"Expertise and zeal are required for an established writer to offer genuinely useful guidance to aspiring writers. It also helps if the writer teaches writing, as Klinkenborg has for many years...The result is a unique anatomy of the sentence and the writing mind and a clarifying and invigorating 'book of first steps.'" -"Booklist"

Praise for Verlyn Klinkenborg's "Several Short Sentences About Writing"
No other book, old or new, is as well reasoned as this, as entertaining or as wise. . . . Best book on writing. Ever. . . . To paraphrase Voltaire s statement concerning the Almighty, if Verlyn Klinkenborg did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him. Because having read "Several Short Sentences About Writing," I do not think that it would be possible to not have this book on hand. . . . Indeed, no other book is as filled with as much grounded, practical advice for putting words to the paper or electronic page or gives better, more helpful exercises.
"New York Journal of Books"
Powerful . . . each sentence miraculously contains an idea or insight that lesser writers would have milked for several pages.
"Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"
An exceptionally interesting and useful book about writing.
Tom McGuane
A fresh perspective on writing that goes against conventional classroom theory.
"Shelf Awareness"
Klinkenborg does away with much of the traditional wisdom on writing and dissects the sentence its structure, its intention, its semantic craftsmanship to deliver a new, useful, and direct guide to the art of storytelling.

Reseña del editor:

An indispensable and distinctive book that will help anyone who wants to write, write better, or have a clearer understanding of what it means for them to be writing, from widely admired writer and teacher Verlyn Klinkenborg.
Klinkenborg believes that most of our received wisdom about how writing works is not only wrong but an obstacle to our ability to write. In Several Short Sentences About Writing, he sets out to help us unlearn that wisdom about genius, about creativity, about writer s block, topic sentences, and outline and understand that writing is just as much about thinking, noticing, and learning what it means to be involved in the act of writing. There is no gospel, no orthodoxy, no dogma in this book. Instead it is a gathering of starting points in a journey toward lively, lucid, satisfying self-expression.
