On How Fiction Works.
I note this review because I'm ambivalent about the book. I've read it once and read at it a couple times after. I'm not sure how much I agree with the essential oils pressed from literature. I'm not certain where I stand with respect to where Wood stands.
In short, I probably didn't really understand it. But the prose is engaging and readable, if, one sometimes observes, sparser than one might like. I recommend the book to all--if only as an antagonist (which is not the way it is to me, as I've said above)--it is worthy of consideration.
