This book is exactly what you need when you get out of college/university and want to start writing fiction. It is practical in its advice, it is "core business" about writing, and it is simple to learn from.
I have read a lot of those pretentious literary and cultivated books on writing. They don't help you write because they're intimidating. This book will help you realize that writing is hard work, can be kept simple and is no mystery. I wish I had read this book many years ago.
