Only the Latest Gleaming Little Gem
From Our Favorite Cleveland Writer
'If you want to truly know the heart of a city, try writing about it. For a handful of years, I worked for a local alternative newspaper as a feature writer, trusted to write about lives I thought had meaning. An editor wondered if it would be difficult to find enough Clevelanders with tales worth telling. I said it would be harder to find somebody without one.'
--from the latest remarkable piece of writing by John Hyduk. He goes on to say in this piece that "there is a genius to listening." Last year, I outlined why he's perhaps my favorite Cleveland writer, even as he remains better known among fellow writers--among whom he inspires something bordering on awe in many--than among average readers.
