The inner workings of a novel,
This review is from: How Novels Work (Paperback)
Anyone who simply wants to skim the surface of 'novels' and who is not at all interested in the process and mechanics of how a writer produces what they (the reader)is reading, will not be interested in this book. For those of us who are interested in the conscious (and unconscious?) writing process, then this book is a great place to begin. I won't repeat what other reviewers have already written, suffice to say that any wannabe writer or anyone with more than a passing interest in the novel should read this book.
