Book Review : A short take on writing features


The second edition of N. Meera Raghavendra Rao’s Feature Writing is not just a re-run of the original version, but has fresh chapters and inputs that add to its utility as handbook for journalism students and anyone wanting to try their hand at writing. The volume covers all the essentials of feature writing in a concise way. After an introduction to journalism in general, bolstered by a comprehensive selection of quotes from media luminaries like C. P. Scott, former editor of the Manchester Guardian, and Joseph Pulitzer  and giants of the literacy world such as Oscar Wilde and John Steinbeck, and even Mahatma Gandhi, Rao gets down to the nitty-gritty of feature writing.
