|Summary:|| In Neatness Counts, Kevin Kopelson offers a series of meditations on how orderliness, chaos, and other physical states correspond with both the exhilaration of production and the desperation of writer's block. Focusing on Elizabeth Bishop, Marcel Proust, Roland Barthes, Tom Stoppard, and Bruce Chatwin, Neatness Counts is at once critical and creative, examining how various writers' work habits relate to their published work.
