    The art of storytelling is one which depends on an intrinsic understanding between the audience and the storyteller. Yet, while many would make the claim that this understanding is something that just happens - perhaps as if by magic -it is only through a vivid exploration of the writer's craft that audiences can truly understand the importance of the art of fiction. In 'How Fiction Works,' prominent author & scholar James Wood continues the tradition of E.M. Forster & Milan Kundera through a pointed and easily digestible foray into the key elements of effective fiction. Throughout this entertaining and informative summation, readers and writers alike gain insight into their essential bonds.

    In reviewing John Wray's novel, Lowboy (2009), James Wood writes, 'Fiction is at once real and imaginary. Not real at one moment and flickeringly illusory the next...but both at once, as if a ghost had a pulse.' His book, How Fiction Works, is both a study of the techniques of fiction-making and an alternative history of the novel. 288p.
