about this book

Compiling wisdom and advice from such masters of the craft as Henry James, E. M. Forster, Eudora Welty, and Toni Morrison, this guide to fiction writing provides helpful observations and techniques for would-be fiction writers, covering such topics as: Beginnings; The Writing Life; Shaping the Story; Making Characters Live; Inventing Your Style; The Story of the Self; Working and Reworking; Finishing. Stephen Koch taught the craft of fiction to graduate students for 21 years in the writing division of the School of the Arts at Columbia University and to undergraduates for 7 years in the Program in Creative Writing at Princeton University.
