I'm back to talk again about about How Fiction Works, the recent book by James Wood. Powell's, the Portland, Oregon, bookstore, chose a Virginia Quarterly Review essay on the book by University of Virginia professor Sydney Blair for its Review-a-Day.
Blair's is a review to match this remarkable book. She brings to our attention many of the important and sometimes amusing bits that make Wood's book not just a must-read but also a must-own.
James Wood, How Fiction Works (2008) pages. 5 / 5 stars.
