Reviews

Useful on the most practical level.... [Stern] plunges his readers into the middle of things.
Offers a raft of examples that explain the techniques used by novelists from Flaubert to Updike--an eminently helpful and engaging writer's guide.
A complete original. The warm, witty, wise voice draws you in, and you leave the book wanting to write--and knowing how.--Jesse Lee Kercheval, director, Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing, University of Wisconsin
Clarifies the mumbo-jumbo. For serious students of fiction, Jerome Stern is the Alpha crow. Follow him and shave the miles off your flying time.--Bob Shacochis, author of Swimming in the Volcano
