Where Inspiration Lives: Writers, Artists, and Their Creative PlacesISBN: 1577312414;
Book DescriptionMany writers and artists are associated with a particular place - a home that helps them create, a refuge that feeds their work. For Georgia O'Keeffe, it was the spare desert spaces of Abiquiu, New Mexico, that inspired her evocative landscapes and still lifes. For Anne Rice, it's the dark streets of New Orleans that lend her vampire novels their Gothic mood. For Gary Snyder, it's the spirit of Kitkitdizze, his remote homestead in the Sierra foothills, that often infuses his poetry. Filled with 50 intimate four-color photos and paintings, this coffee-table book explores the sanctuaries of these and seven other creators: Henry Miller, Peter Matthiessen, Larry McMurtry, Richard Diebenkorn, Terry McMillan, Henry David Thoreau, and Eudora Welty.
