Summary: John Gardner was famous for his generosity to young writers, and (this book) is his gift to them. The Art of Fiction will fascinate anyone interested in how fiction gets put together. For the young writer, it will become a necessary handbook, a stern judge, an encouraging friend.--The New York Times Book Review. "This is Gardner's second posthumous book on fiction, and a companion to the first, On Becoming a Novelist. It is designed as 'a book to teach the s
erious beginning writer the art of fiction.'The first part deals with theory, from literary-aesthetic theory to deconstruction and jazzing around.The second section is more pragmatic, treating common errors, technique, and plotting, and closing with sample exercises."(Libr J)
