"Some of our very best fiction writers tackle many of the thorniest and most fascinating aspects of storytelling. Thoughtful and serious and wise, this is much more than a how-to book."-- Richard Russo

"Rule number one is when you get a chance to study with a master, you take it. Rule number two is when you get a chance to study a master studying another master, you push Grandma out of the way to take it. This is a rule number two book. Get it, read it, shelve it--along with its companion volumes--next to Nabokov's 'Lectures on Literature' and O'Connor's 'Mystery and Manners.'"-- David Wroblewski
