Professional reviews

"For 14 years, Mystery Grandmaster Lawrence Block wrote the monthly fiction column for WRITER'S DIGEST. Forty-seven of these columns have been woven together into this clever "manual for fiction writers." As Block reads his columns, detailing everything from studying the market and breaking writer's block to developing plot and the inner workings of a writer's life, his understanding and dry wit come through. As Block explains his insights and strategies, describing the evolution of his own writing career, he answers questions from imaginary class members, giving the listener the sense of truly sitting at the master's feet.
