Madden's book is a treasure of knowledge, and the fact that it is out of print is a tragedy. Prospective buyers would be foolish to pass up this great writing treasure. Why read a plethora of Betty Croker Creative Writing texts when you have Thomas Keller of the French Laundry ready to teach you how to avoid spoiling the soup? I would give this book 10 stars if it were possible, and a big bravo to Keller...I mean, David Madden.
Because I marked up my copy of Madden's Revising Fiction so much (it had that much to say), I ordered a second copy of Madden's book today, July 8, 2011. I wanted to own a clean copy, so I can project many of its time-saving 185 lessons in class when teaching fiction to students. I hope a new edition is published in the near future so I can adopt Revising Fiction for the classroom.
Happy writing to all!
