They draw the reader into worlds that seem miraculously whole. How was this accomplished? In interviews that center on the aspect of craft each story exemplifies, the authors describe the challenges they faced and reveal the often disorderly process behind the seamless finished work.The volume includes stories by and interviews with Sandra Cisneros, Kim Edwards, George Garrett, Ellen Gilchrist, Gail Godwin, Allan Gurganus, Charles Johnson, Walter Kirn, Jhumpa Lahiri, Ursula K. Le Guin, Elizabeth Tallent, and Tobias Wolff.

    Selgin, an author and novelist, gathers together advice gleaned from about a thousand writing critiques that he has given as an editor and teacher to help novelists troubleshoot their work. He outlines 179 ways to improve a novel in terms of substance, structure, style, soul, symbol, myth, metaphor, and other areas. He offers the tips as meditations meant to challenge, inspire, provoke, and awaken awareness in writers, rather than a how-to manual (although there are some how-to questions and answers at the end of sections), reflecting on such issues as character, plot, titles, tone, and setting.
