Product description


Writers Talk gives readers a sense that they're listening in on real conversations between some of Britain's top fiction writers and people who know how to get at the ideas behind their work. Accessible enough for undergraduate students, with clear explanations of key terms, this volume also has surprising insights for researchers in the field. It's a book I'll be recommending to students and colleagues in the future.'
Dr Lynn Wells, Faculty of Arts, University of Regina, USA
