From the Inside Flap
--Andrea Barrett, author of Ship Fever "Bringing the Devil To His Knees" brings to the reader exactly the right mix of wisdom and humility. The solutions these writers offer to problems of craft and presentation are hard-earned, and it is the difficult cost of their knowledge, and the clarity with which they explain it, that makes this such an important and helpful book. It's less How To than What If?, which seems to me the wisest and most practical tact for a book of this sort to take. I would put it on my bookshelf between other indispensable guides to fictional craft--Flaubert's Letters and Madame Bovary itself."
