I stumbled across an older book, and I'd love to find others like it. Help?

I recently came across Jay Woodruff's A Piece of Work
, which includes some writers’ drafts and their revisions, along with interview material about the process of making changes to their writing. I’d love to find some other books like this, but Amazon is no help, and LibraryThing’s Book Suggester didn’t turn up anything especially relevant.
Do you know of any books that give multiple writers’ perspectives on revision (in some depth) and/or show progression of a piece from draft to finished product? I’m aware of the section in King’s On Writing
that does this; I’m hoping for something focused largely on revision.
