Description

"Somebody commissioned to design the perfect writing mentor would probably come back with Fred Stenson. Stenson is wise, funny, and blessedly enthusiastic about the craft of writing. This is a book real writers are going to use, again and again."--Curtis Gillespie, Playing Through and The Progress of an Object in Motion"In Thing Feigned or Imagined, Stenson takes his readers into the workshop of the writer, examining both basic and seldom-considered aspects of the craft of fiction. The result is illuminating: a book that writers of all levels of expertise will cherish."--Merna Summers

Editorial Review

"Stenson is the equal of anyone working this ground--his voice is a master's, and Lightning is a commanding novel." --Leif Enger, author of Peace Like A River"With Lightning, [Stenson] becomes Canada's answer to the likes of Larry McMurtry and Cormac McCarthy." --Edmonton Journal"Marvellous characters break free of all fictional constraints, walk straight out of the book and grab you by the cojones." --The Globe and Mail
