This LT Work is Daniel Halpern's anthology, Who’s Writing This? Notations on the Authorial I, with Self-Portraits, published separately as a retail hardcover (1995) and reissued in trade paperback format (2009). It includes selections from 56 Authors, some of which are shared but are not entirely the same as the similarly titled Spring 1994 volume of Antæus magazine, No. 73/74, which Halpern also edited. Please maintain our distinction between these different Works. Thank you.

It is a rare occasion that readers are given privileged information (however tongue-in-cheek) about the identities of their favorite authors, still rarer to meet their guises in the same place. Who's Writing This is a writer's and reader's delight, a joyous and eloquent spoof on self-knowledge and expression by the best in the business.
