Publisher's Summary

We've all heard them: Show don't tell; Kill your darlings; Use significant detail. In this clever, quick-moving account of a love affair gone wrong, writing rules frame a deeper truth of the fictions we tell ourselves when we fall in and out of love.

    "A Great Story-A Writer's Story"

    Not only a wonderful story about a universal relationship, but a true depiction of all the literary precepts included in the tale. As this relationship slips into the inevitable, we are shown how to write the story in the first place.

    A perfect example of what fiction should do while also making fun of the rules. A very enjoyable listen, one that most will relate to.
