MEDIA REVIEWS

"I am impressed by the coverage of this book. But it is also braver than most texts of this type in that it goes beyond purely literary fiction and teaches popular short fiction. It is an essential text which is the next exciting chapter of this wonderful programme from Routledge." David Morley, Director of Warwick Writing Programme, University of Warwick, UK

"This is a strong subject textbook which is full of original and rigorous exercises. There is a useful, workbook element to the examples, and a thorough and innovative approach to the technical issues of plot, character, voice etc." Julia Bell, Lecturer in Creative Writing, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
