Writers Havens
Writers are reclusive by necessity, which makes their homes particular subjects of curiosity. To see where a writer works and lives is to see what influences them, what moves them, what they need to produce their particular brand of genius. It was an irresistible subject for a book says JD McClatchy, author of American Writers at Home. McClatchy traveled all over the U.S. to capture the homes of 21 of America's foremost writers. From Hemingway's legendary Key West spread to Walt Whitman's tiny home, McClatchy hopes seeing and feeling the writers' environments will give readers new insight to some of their favorite authors. Just released in the UK, the author talks to The Scotsman about her experiences visiting the famous homes.
