"Voice and Vision is as much a tour de force of critical reading as it is an incomparable guide to the writing of history, a brilliant elaboration of the subtle dialect between "art" and "craft" in nonfiction prose."
--Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums

"Pyne offers a powerful and persuasive case for works that combine the techniques of great literature -- including a novelist's eye for narrative, language, character development, and scene setting -- with a historian's passion for factual accuracy and respect for the rules of evidence. This is a remarkable book."
--Steven Mintz, author of Huck's Raft: A History of American Childhood

"This engaging discussion of historical narrative is part meditation and part manual. It distills the experience, gained from wide and generous reading as well as prolific writing, of a master of the genre."
--Harriet Ritvo, author of The Platypus and the Mermaid
