From the Back Cover:

Do you want to take your fiction writing to the next level?

LEARN FROM THE MASTERS

...Jane Austen, Ernest Hemingway, John Updike, Toni Morrison, William Faulkner, Joseph Conrad, Vladimir Nabokov, James Joyce, and Iris Murdoch.

"Adam Sexton taught me how to read like a writer--and, in a way, how to write like a reader. For without first considering the experience of reading stories--seriously, thoroughly, the way Sexton does--you can't possibly write one worth reading."--Tara McCarthy, author, Love Will Tear Us Apart

Many writers believe that if they just find the right teacher or workshop, their writing will reach new heights of skill. But why not learn from the best? In his popular workshops in New York City, creative writing instructor Adam Sexton has found that the most effective way for any writer to grasp on the elements of fiction is to study the great masters. Master Class in Fiction Writing is your personal crash course in creative writing, with the world's most accomplished fiction writers as your guides.

You'll learn the art of characterization from Austen, style and voice from Hemingway, and dialogue from Murdoch. You'll discover the timeless techniques of plotting in the work of Conrad and the ingenious structure of Joyce. These are the most important lessons any writer can learn--a truly "novel" approach to writing that will enrich, inform, and inspire.

About the Author:

Adam Sexton teaches writing at the New School and New York University. He has also written on arts and entertainment for the New York Times, the Village Voice, and the Boston Phoenix.
