Publisher's Summary

Four-time Edgar Award-winning author Lawrence Block’s definitive essay collection on the art of writing fiction

For 10 years, crime novelist Lawrence Block funneled his wealth of writing expertise into a monthly column for Writer’s Digest. Collected here for the first time are those pieces illuminating the tricks of the authorial trade, from creating vibrant characters and generating seamless plots, to conquering writer’s block and experimenting with self-publishing.

Filled with wit and insight, The Liar’s Bible is a must-listen for experts, amateurs, and anyone interested in learning to craft great fiction from one of the field’s modern masters.

Enjoyable, Block is very entertaining.

Enjoyable, but the info was very mixed. I recommend this book, but as entertainment with a little writing advice sprinkled in.
