Academic journal article Composition Studies. Sentimental Attachments is a short book, and deliberately so; the author likens it to a novella, and this is one of the caveats with which she begins her book. Sentimental Attachments: Essays, Creative Nonfiction, and Other Experiments in Composition. For readers who write and study the essay and its relationship to composition studies or have grappled in their teaching and writing with enacting the hybridity of personal and academic writing, the justifications she makes about the form and length of the project have a recognizable though useful refrain.

But Sentimental Attachments specifically focuses on how the nebulous genre of the essay embodies the central premise .. that some hybrid form of composition can fuse the personal and the academic (vii). Most useful is her discussion of how the luxury of being in composition studies at this time invites composition as a form to have rich and varied possibilities (9).

For Eldred, teachers of writing need to experience the art and craft of composing creative nonfiction and essays firsthand, exploring multiple perspectives, genres, styles, modes, structures, and subjects. They will be at their best, she argues, if they enact what they profess. Sentimental Attachments opens and closes with important and passionate arguments about why teachers of composition must also be writers of what Eldred calls "lived experience.

Can you recall a book by the author Ian Caldwell? His book, The Rule of Four made it to the bestseller list, but there isn't an immediate spark of remembrance enflamed by the mention of his name for the average Joe. Titles like "The Red Death" and "Oliver Twist" make themselves known in your little head. These are books of all time, the ones who are not so easily forgotten

Janet Carey Eldred has been on the faculty of the English Department of the University of Kentucky since 1987, where she also directs its campus-wide writing initiative. She coauthored Imagining Rhetoric (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2002), a study of early . women's composing practices.

"This book was written first and foremost for other writers..." begins Janet Carey Eldred's extraordinary work of blended genres. For Eldred, teachers of writing need to experience the art and craft of composing creative nonfiction and essays firsthand, exploring multiple perspectives, genres, styles, modes, structures, and subjects. They will be at their best, she argues, if they enact what they profess.

Sentimental Attachments opens and closes with important and passionate arguments about why teachers of composition must also be writers of what Eldred calls "lived experience." At its center, however, the book offers a series of lyrical, evocative, exploratory essays that address a range of essential and complex questions: How do we compose our personal and professional identities? How do we represent our different selves without compromising other parts of our lives-and, perhaps even more important, the lives of others? How do we maintain a strong voice in the world without losing sight of other people, places, histories, and ideas?

Like others who defy the conventional view that we must hold the personal separate from the political - or the professional - Janet Carey Eldred believes that teachers of writing must compose themselves as they help others to compose. "We are living drafts in progress," she writes, and in Sentimental Attachments, she models the kinds of composition and revision that make life - and the life of writing and teaching - meaningful.
