    Ranging widely from Homer to David Foster Wallace, from What Maisie Knew to Make Way for Ducklings, Wood takes the reader through the basic elements of the art, step by step. He sums up two decades of insight with wit and concision, resulting in nothing less than a philosophy of the novel, which has won critical acclaim nationwide, from the San Francisco Chronicle to the New York Times Book Review.

    Don says: "Educational!"
    "Pretty Scholarly"
    Overall

    I bought this book because I'm interested in the art of writing and it was a worthwhile listen. I could see it being used in an academic setting rather than for a casual read. Hey, but I like a challenge every once in a while. It will expose you to great writers and how they practiced their craft. And better still, elements of fiction practiced by each.
