520    "Great description shakes us. It fills our lungs with the 
       life of its author." Painted Paragraphs, the second in a 
       series of inspirational guides for writers and readers, is
       author Donald Newlove's witty, insightful, and very 
       personal selection of the best descriptive passages in 
       literature. Beginning with Ernest Hemingway's dinner of 
       oysters and wine in A Moveable Feast, Newlove moves on to 
       give us the contents of Mildred's cupboard in Terry 
       McMillan's Mama, Robert Stone's description of a rat-
       infested tug dump in Outerbridge Reach, Richard Selzer's 
       brilliant anatomy lesson in his memoir Down from Troy, and
       John Edgar Wideman's mood painting of a tree by his 
       mother's house in the black section of Pittsburgh in "All 
       Stories Are True." Also included are selections from 
       Tolstoy, Proust, Shakespeare, Anais Nin, lots and lots of 
       gorgeous Whitman, and dozens more. 
520 8  This idiosyncratic collection not only celebrates great 
       authors, it explains how they use strokes of moral force 
       and courage to paint the landscapes of their work.
