Editorial Reviews

Review

"At last. A damn good how-to book about writing a novel. Practical, down to earth, easily assimilated advice, presented with humor and authority."—Irma Ruth Walker, author of Air Force Wives

"Frey has the genius of a true teacher: a thorough knowledge of his subject, combined with the ability to entertain while communicating that knowledge. This book has practical adviuce for serious writers."—Donna Levin, author of Extraordinary Means

"Superb. The kind of book that should be kept by every author next to the typewriter. Frey not only includes the basics of good writing, but the invaluable hints of how to add depth and texture to a novel. Inspiring and clear, the book gives detailed examples of common pitfalls and how to correct them . . . Not only instructive but pleasurable."—Alla Crone, author of Winds Over Manchuria and East Lies the Sun

From the Back Cover

Written in a clear, crisp style, this book is perfect for beginners or professional writers who need a crash course in the down-to-earth basics of storytelling. Talent and inspiration can't be taught, but Frey does give helpful, sensible rules and principles that will free a writer to face that intimidating first page, keep him on track when he falters, and help him analyze the problems with his work when he's done.
