Editorial Reviews

Review

"I am impressed by the coverage of this book. But it is also braver than most texts of this type in that it goes beyond purely literary fiction and teaches popular short fiction. It is an essential text which is the next exciting chapter of this wonderful programme from Routledge." David Morley, Director of Warwick Writing Programme, University of Warwick, UK

"This is a strong subject textbook which is full of original and rigorous exercises. There is a useful, workbook element to the examples, and a thorough and innovative approach to the technical issues of plot, character, voice etc." Julia Bell, Lecturer in Creative Writing, Birkbeck, University of London, UK

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is a book that seems too busy to me at first, but which I find speaks to my needs. It talks about epiphanies and themes and how to address atmosphere -- things most writing books just point to, but this book explains. I'd give it five stars if it were more organized with Q&A and "exercises" or "recommendations." I would buy it again but again as I already did, as a used and discounted book. I paid a fraction of the original cost for a used book in mint condition.

Format: Paperback
One of the stand-out books on creative writing. It's full of helpful examples, advice and great exercises to get the ideas and words flowing. The guidelines on tackling the modern short story are excellent, in particular non-linear, image-based fiction. Highly
recommended.
