The Fiction Class

the fiction class

I’d like to tell you about a book that not only teaches you about fiction, but is fiction.  

The Fiction Class, by Susan Breen, is a story about Arabella Hicks, teacher of a weekly fiction class on New York’s Upper West Side.  An author herself, Arabella can’t seem to find an ending to a novel she has been working on for seven years.

I love the way this book incorporates class lessons and assignments about character, plot, point of view, etc., right in with the story.  Clever.

For an excerpt from the novel go to Gotham Writer’s Workshop.

And for reviews, go to The Fiction Class Reviews.
