Summary This book profiles twenty-six authors with original and distinctive approaches to literature and language. From a man who used vanity license plates to tell stories and a woman who made new poems by subtracting letters from published works, to people who studied word origins and variations, this is a celebration of the adventurers who have explored language with a sense of curiosity and playfulness. -- adapted from information provided and jacket.
