William Zinsser died at age 92 this month. He wrote On Writing Well, one of the finest books on writing. The New York Times obituary said it "...became a book that editors and teachers encouraged writers to reread annually in the manner of another classic on the craft of writing, The Elements of Style, by William Strunk Jr. and E. B. White."
I am very grateful to have been exposed to this book early. I and many others who hope to write well are grateful for Mr. Zinsser's text.
