Product Details

About the Author

Peter Selgin is currently the Viebranz Distinguished Writer in Residence at St. Lawrence University, in Canton, New York. Winner of the 2007 Flannery O'Connor Award for Fiction for his story collection Drowning Lessons, Selgin has also published a novel, Life Goes to the Movies, and two works on the fiction writer's craft, 179 Ways to Save a Novel: Matters of Vital Concern to Fiction Writers and By Cunning and Craft: Sound Advice and Practical Wisdom for Fiction Writers.


"In the title essay of Confessions of a Left-Handed Man, Peter Selgin displays, as he does time and time again in this finely wrought collection, wit and charm and disarming honesty. However circular these autobiographical narratives might be, they always come back to rest smartly and interestingly in the human heart."--Helen Schulman, author, This Beautiful Life "Peter Selgin's portrait of the artist as a restless, fretful, left-handed young man in search of serenity is thoughtful, erudite, and witty. In the essayistic tradition of Montaigne and Lopate, Selgin digs deep and holds nothing back. A fascinating read."--Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic and Desire "Peter Selgin is a born writer, capable of taking any subject and exploring it from a new angle, with wit, grace, and erudition. He has a keen eye for the telling detail and a voice that is deeply personal, appealing, and wholly original. Fans of Selgin's fiction will know they are in for a treat, and those who are new to his work would do well to start with this marvelous memoir in essays, his finest writing yet."--Oliver Sacks
