With characteristic brevity, Wolfe provides the reader with succinct advice about the art of writing a novel. The advice ranges from the fallacy of waiting for inspiration to the importance of character to general guidance on selling novels to publishers. Wolfe stresses the importance of revision, intentional ambiguity, and the importance of surprising oneself.
