Gardner was almost as famous as a teacher as he was for his writing. Distilled from his courses and seminars, The Art of Fiction is a no-nonsense and cogent guide to the principles and techniques of good writing. This is a work for the serious beginning writer and makes no apologies for the demands of craft.

"A densely packed book of advice to all writers, not just young ones..."--Margaret Manning, Boston Globe

"He lays out virtually everything a person might want to know [about] how to say it, with good and bad examples."--William McPherson, Washington Post
