MFA Alum Bill Mesce’s No Rule That Isn’t a Dare Published By Serving House Books
Serving House Books has just published No Rule That Isn’t a Dare: How Writers Connect with Readers, a book of interviews and essays as edited by FDU MFA alum Bill Mesce. Robert Stewart, editor of New Letters & author of The NarrowGate: Writing, Art & Values, writes:
Bill Mesce has made you, the reader, beneficiary of his commentaries on writing and conversations with writers, as they reveal the processes of their craft. Each writer here becomes for you–as for me–a kind of mentor, under Mesce’s direction, exposing many ways the work gets done. Mesce’s selection of writers goes beyond the usual celebrities, and offers enough variety, wit, eccentricity, and intelligence for any writer to find insights in abundance.
Bill Mesce, Jr. is a writer and college instructor living in New Jersey. His most recent work includes the WW II novel A Cold and Distant Place, and the nonfiction books, Inside the Rise of HBO: A Personal History of the Company That Transformed Television, and Idols, Icons, and Illusions: The Movies We Love — and Love to Hate — and the People Who Made Them.
