Making a Novel (French Literature)by Gerard Gavarry
Synopses & Reviews
A literary exploration into the serendipitous convergences underpinning the writing of a novel (in this case, Ge∞rard Gavarry"s masterful Hoppla! 1 2 3), this rare and revealing glimpse into the creative process pulls back the curtain on the composition of a playful and self-conscious work of fiction. Moving back and forth between detailed explanation and personal anecdotes, Ge∞rard Gavarry"s Making a Novelis partly a memoir of a writer"s life and partly a memoir of his work, showing us how every story, no matter how well-planned, could always have been written countless other ways.
