A View from the Divide
Creative Nonfiction on Health and Science
Gutkind, Lee
In the tradition of Lewis Thomas, Stephen J. Gould, and Oliver Sachs, this special double issue of Creative Nonfiction, the only exclusively nonfiction literary journal, demonstrates the many ways in which aspects of the scientific world—from biology, medicine, physics, and astronomy—can be captured and dramatized for a humanities-oriented readership.
Lee Gutkind has performed as a clown for Ringling Brothers, scrubbed with heart and liver transplant surgeons, traveled with a crew of National League Baseball umpires, and wandered the country on a motorcycle--all as research for eight books and numerous profiles and essays. He is the author of An Unspoken Art, a Book-of-the-Month Club Selection, The Best Seat in Baseball, But You Have to Stand!, and the editor of A View From the Divide: Creative Nonfiction on Health and Science. Gutkind, founder and editor of Creative Nonfiction, is also the editor for the Emerging Writers in Creative Nonfiction book series, serves as director for the Mid-Atlantic Creative Nonfiction Writers' Conference at Goucher College in Baltimore, and is a professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh. He lives in Pittsburgh.

In the tradition of Lewis Thomas, Stephen J. Gould, and Oliver Sachs, this special double issue of Creative Nonfiction, the only exclusively nonfiction literary journal, demonstrates the many ways in which aspects of the scientific world—from biology, medicine, physics, and astronomy—can be captured and dramatized for a humanities-oriented readership. Edited and introduced by the award-winning author of Many Sleepless Nights and An Unspoken Art, A View from the Divide includes a diverse range of voices, from poets to immunologists and physicists, from established writers to up-and-coming new talent.
