"Ms. Casey summarizes the plots of her selected texts copiously, but her abiding message brings confidence that she hasn't given too much away."--The Wall Street Journal"Books on writing should be inspiring and should remind writers--and readers--why we fell in love with stories in the first place. The Art of Mystery does just this."--The Gazette (Cedar Rapids)"[The Art of Mystery] delves concretely and satisfyingly into the complex pleasures this particular literary climate has to
offer."--Pasatiempo"A slim but substantial exploration of the concept of mystery in literature."--Shelf Awareness"A rich survey looking beyond the usual academic treatment, for writers and readers alike."--Library Journal, starred review"This slim but astute volume is an inducement both to read more deeply and to head for ever more unchartered, frozen, mysterious waters."--Kirkus Reviews
