One Word: Contemporary Writers on the Words They Love or Loathe Description

"Readers will find that the words profiled here have a new trace of meaning, warmth, and a time-worn glow."--John Morse, publisher of Merriam-Webster, Inc.

In "One Word: Contemporary Writers on the Words They Love or Loathe," Molly McQuade asks the question all writers love to answer: what one word means the most to you, and why? Writers respond with a wild gallimaufry of their choosing, from "ardor" to "bitchin'" to "thermostat" to "wrong" to "very." There is "corn," not the vegetable but the idea, defining cultural generations; "solmizate," meaning to sing an object into place; and delicious slang, such as "darb" and "dassn't." Composed as expository or lyric essays, zinging one-liners, extended quips, jeremiads, etymological adventures, or fantastic romps, the writings address not only English words but also a select few from French, German, Japanese, Quechua, Basque, Igbo, and others. The result is like the best of meals: filled with color, personality, and pomp. There is something delightful and significant for every reader who picks up this wonderful book.

Includes contributions by Albert Goldbarth, Forrest Gander, Brenda Hillman, Mimi Schwartz, Daisy Fried, Thylias Moss, Srikanth Reddy, Susan Bernofsky, Michael Martone, Cole Swensen, and more.
