History, Sociology. Fiction -- Authorship. Fiction -- Technique. Fiction -- History and criticism.
What makes a story a story? What is style? What's the connection between realism and real life? These are some of the questions James Wood answers in How Fiction Works. Raging widely from Homer to David Foster Wallace, from What Maisie Knew to Make Way for Ducklings, Woods takes the reader through the basic elements of the art, step by step.
