Selected Works

Radio podcast of the latest non-fiction title.
Listen (about halfway in) to Sarah Montague's interview with me about E. B. White on Dogs:
NEW! (2013) Essays, Poems & Sketches
"The Dog Show is the only place I know of where you can watch a lady go down on her knees in public to show off the good points of a dog, thus obliterating her own." (E. B. W., "Turtle Bay Diary.")
Literary Quotations
"I admire anyone who has the guts to write anything at all." (E.B.W., "The Art of the Essay," Paris Review)
Correspondence, Biography through Letters
“A man who publishes his letters becomes a nudist – nothing shields him from the world’s gaze except his bare skin.”
– E.B. White
Non-Fiction: Folklore
From the Christian Science Monitor February 28, 2003

Please note: If you are pitching a BUSINESS story, you want Martha C.White, not me.
