Synopsis: If you are serious about writing literary fiction, then this is a book you must read. It essentially helps you troubleshoot your writing--from concept, to structure, to execution. It uses many examples from famous authors and show the drafts they wrote before revision. This is the only book I've seen where the author is able to do such numerous and direct comparisons between drafts so the reader can see exactly what was changed and why. The book also asks you to consider many aspects of your writing that other books on writing and editing fiction don't even touch upon. I would not recommend this book if you haven't already done a lot of serious fiction writing, because unless you have, you probably won't understand the significance of some of the issues raised in the book.
