Summary: How to Grow a Novel is an invaluable editorial workshop in print. It includes details and examples from Sol Stein's behind-the-scenes work with bestselling novelists as well as talented newcomers. Stein takes the reader backstage in the development of memorable characters and fascinating plots. The chapter on dialogue overflows with solutions for short story writers, novelists, screenwriters, and playwrights. Stein shows what readers are looking for-and what t morehey avoid-in the experience of reading fiction. The book offers guidelines-and warnings-of special value for nonfiction writers who want to move into fiction. Stein points to the little, often overlooked things that damage the writer's authority without the writer knowing it. And this book, like no other writing book, takes the reader behind the scenes of the publishing business as it affects writers of every level of experience, revealing the hard truths that are kept behind shut doors. less
