by | Read by John Lee

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Author and professor Joe Moran affectionately explains the importance of the sentence, and offers insightful writing tips. Narrator John Lee's sophisticated and scholarly tone adds character to Moran's poetic emphasis on words and their beauty. Both unequivocally convince listeners of the value and allure of the well-crafted sentence, using examples from renowned writers. Lee's distinguished delivery is strong during the author's instructions for being a writer. This listen offers hope to anyone pursuing an artistic, loving approach to the written word and authorship. With appreciation for word choice and sentence structure, Moran assures listeners that anyone can write a good sentence. D.Z. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
