Unless It Moves the Human Heart By Roger Rosenblatt

For more than forty years, distinguished author Roger Rosenblatt has also been a teacher of writing, guiding students with the same intelligence and generosity he brings to the page, answering the difficult questions about what makes a story good, an essay shapely, a novel successful, and the most profound and essential question of them all?why write?Unless It Moves the Human Heart details one semes

Ter in Rosenblatt's "Writing Everything" class. In a series of funny, intimate conversations, a diverse group of students?from Inur, a young woman whose family is from Pakistan, to Sven, an ex?fighter pilot?grapples with the questions and subjects most important to narrative craft. Delving into their varied lives, Rosenblatt brings readers closer to them, emotionally investing us in their failures and triumphs.More than a how-to for writers and aspiring writers, more than a memoir of teaching, Unless It Moves the Human Heart is a deeply felt and impassioned plea for the necessity of writing in our lives. As Rosenblatt wisely reminds us, "Writing is the cure for the disease of living. Doing it may sometimes feel like an escape from the world, but at its best moments it is an act of rescue."
