World

Sarah Freedman has written a timely and lucid book with important implications for educational practice on both sides of the Atlantic… The book is distinguished by the way in which it uses the fresh and vigorous insights of the eight teachers and their thirty-two students. Skillful analysis of the students’ work and the comments by teachers provided the new evidence about the complex ways in which writing reflects and shapes education… The judgments of this highly respected educator are worthy of attention.—James Porter, The Times Educational Supplement

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
