Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'For God's sake, keep your eyes open. Notice what's going on around you.'

William S. Burroughs

This step-by-step guide to the art — and the craft — of writing fiction is a refreshing blend of the practical (how to find an agent), with the more cerebral (how to handle point of view; the importance of rhythm).

Throughout, Quick uses the hard-won experiences of his fellow novelists to give color and depth to his own advice. Did you know, for instance, that Road Dahl wrote in a shed? That Nabokov composed his masterpieces on index cards? Or — alas — that most writers get their best work done in the mornings?

Full of wit and lightly-worn erudition, 102 Ways to Write a Novel is an elegant, useful and even inspiring vade mecum. It will become a classic of its kind – the book no writer of fiction should be without.

Synopsis:

This delightful vade mecum for the aspiring author is a witty, sympathetic, down-to-earth blend of the worldly with the cerebral.

Synopsis:

This straight-talking, sympathetic, but never patronizing guide to the art—and the craft—of writing fiction is a refreshing blend of the mundane (how to find an agent), with the more cerebral (the importance of rhythm; how to handle point of view). A delightful vade mecum for the aspiring author.

About the Author

Alex Quick writes and lives in Norfolk, UK, and tries – not always successfully – to follow the advice in this book. He is the author, under a different name, of several critically acclaimed novels, as well as (under the pseudonym Alex Quick) 102 Free Things to Do and (coming this autumn) 102 English Things to Do.
