Inspired by the classic photo essays that once appeared in Life magazine, renowned photographer Laura Wilson presents dynamic portraits of 38 internationally acclaimed writers. Photos and descriptive text afford glimpses into the everyday lives of such luminaries as Rachel Cusk, Edwidge Danticat, David McCullough, Haruki Murakami, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and the late Carlos Fuentes and Seamus Heaney, among others. Margaret Atwood works in her garden. Tim O’Brien performs magic tricks for his family. And Louise Erdrich, who contributes an introduction, speaks with customers in her Minneapolis bookstore. Inviting and poignant, The Writers: Portraits reflects on writing and photography’s shared concerns with invention, transformation, memory, and preservation. Laura Wilson’s photographs have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, the New Yorker, and Vanity Fair, among other publications.
