You will learn to read fiction not as a fan or distant admirer but as a writer looking for techniques and inspirations for your own work. Beginning at the level of the sentence, we will experiment, through exercises, with the myriad possibilities of fiction. By the end, you will learn how to turn to your own bookcases to solve the puzzles in your work. In the process, you will be introduced to dozens of new authors to whom you might turn in the dark hours of creation.
Andrew Sean Greer is an American novelist and short-story writer. His second novel The Confessions of Max Tivoli earned him comparisons to Proust and Nabokov from critic John Updike. His stories have appeared in Esquire, The Paris Review, The New Yorker, and other national publications.
