Jewish Community Center of San Francisco says…

Good Prose Tracy Kidder is acclaimed for his strong story lines and distinctive literary voice. The Soul of a New Machine – a book celebrated for its insight into the world of high-tech corporate America – earned him a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. His enormously influential book Mountains Beyond Mountains, the story of Dr. Paul Farmer, who helped stem the tide of new HIV and TB infections in Haiti, is a gripping and uplifting account of one man’s compassion for the poor. In Kidder’s latest book, Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction, he shares the secrets of his writing success, providing inspiration and guidance for seasoned and novice writers alike. "Kidder has become a high priest of the narrative arts." – New York Times
