Summary
""Richard Stern is a literary treasure."--Scott Turow" ""Stern's new miscellany reveals a literary mind of the first order, thinking in elegant prose about dozens of interesting subjects."--Philip Roth" ""Stern is a great virtuoso. ... [I]n an ailing literary culture, we should be grateful for a work like this and a career, too, spanning the American half-century."--New York Times Book Review" ""Stern's skill gives vitality to everything he treats."--Edmund White, Los Angeles Times" ""Like a gifted dancer in a small space, Stern has tremendous grace and ease on the page, executing dynamic turns and dips with a fine economy of motion and without sacrificing nuance."--Booklist" "Still on Call is the sixth and final collection of critically acclaimed novelist and educator Richard Stern. "Orderly miscellany" is the author's term for this aggregation of reflections, essays, reviews, reportage, commentary, and observations on writing and fellow writers, life, and contemporary culture." "The collection's three sections, Coasting, Posting, and Hosting, contain pieces that range from reflections on becoming a writer in the 1940s to assessments of such major writers and close colleagues as Norman Mailer, Saul Bellow, and Donald Justice to topical offerings from Stern's popular blog for the New Republic." "This wide-ranging collection is intended as the culmination of sixty years of the writing life but, first and foremost, as provocative entertainment. Stern is a prolific writer, and this selection of some of his highest-quality writing both educates and enthralls."--Jacket
