by [Writing Technique] Surmelian, Leon.

Publisher Information:
Doubleday, New York: 1968.

A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. "Inspiration is not enough, and something more than imagination is needed in mimesis." Thid book, a workshop demonstration of all the processes involved in writing fiction, is also implemented with selective illustrations from Chekhov to Camus, and it's a well-ordered discussion of scene (which gives life and movement and intensity to the story) and summary (which explains) and description; of characters, the ""driving force"" and plot; of tenses, and of style (the ""true measure of a man"") and various styles although the former is just as innate as the ""madness"" to which Surmelian has contributed a great many functional controls.
