520    "Draft No. 4 is a master class on the writer's craft. In a
       series of playful, expertly wrought essays, John McPhee 
       shares insights he has gathered over his career and has 
       refined while teaching at Princeton University, where he 
       has nurtured some of the most esteemed writers of recent 
       decades. McPhee offers definitive guidance in the 
       decisions regarding arrangement, diction, and tone that 
       shape nonfiction pieces, and he presents extracts from his
       work, subjecting them to wry scrutiny. In one essay, he 
       considers the delicate art of getting sources to tell you 
       what they might not otherwise reveal. In another, he 
       discusses how to use flashback to place a bear encounter 
       in a travel narrative, while observing that "readers are 
       not supposed to notice the structure. It is meant to be 
       about as visible as someone's bones." The result is a 
       vivid depiction of the writing process, from reporting to 
       drafting to revising--and revising, and revising. Draft 
       No. 4 is enriched by multiple diagrams and by personal 
       anecdotes and charming reflections on the life of a 
       writer. McPhee describes his enduring relationships with 
       The New Yorker and Farrar, Straus and Giroux, and recalls 
       his early years at Time magazine. Throughout, Draft No. 4 
       is enlivened by his keen sense of writing as a way of 
       being in the world."--Jacket.
