Synopses & Reviews
With her sharp mind and wit, master storyteller Ursula K. Le Guin generously shares the accumulated wisdom of a lifetime's work at the writer's craft. Concerned with how a story is told, what moves and what clogs it, STEERING THE CRAFT looks at the sound of language; rhythm and repetition; grammar; crowding, leaping, focus, and control; and more. Indispensable for established as well as aspiring writers.
An exhilarating workout for writers of narrative fiction or nonfiction. With her sharp mind and wit and a delightful sense of playfulness, Le Guin has turned a successful workshop into a self-guided voyage of discovery for a writer working alone or for a writing group or class.
