It Is Written: My Life in Letters

Philip Lee Williams
Mercer University Press
$29

Filled with colorful details and rich with photographs of the author's life, It Is Written is a beautifully written page-turner about how one person turns the raw materials of life into art.

Over a 30-year career as a published author of fiction, poetry and essays, Philip Lee Williams, a former assistant dean in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, has become one of the South's most-honored writers.

In It Is Written, Williams tells the story of his creative life in an open, jaunty and often hilarious autobiography. While the book has plenty on Williams' youth in Madison, his days as a student at UGA and his later years as a journalist, it focuses primarily on his career as a published writer, beginning with his first novel, The Heart of a Distant Forest.
