About the Author

BRIAN SHAWVER is the author of two novels, Aftermath and The Cuban Prospect, and of The Language of Fiction: A Writer's Stylebook. He is associate professor of English at Park University, in Kansas City.


"With a wealth of examples from fiction across genres and time periods, Shawver's guide will be indispensable for those who are beginning to write or want to improve their prose" --Choice
"[Shawver] proves such an engaging companion on the page that any serious reader should delight in what he has to say-and any aspiring writer would be foolish not to listen"--Santa Fe New Mexican
"The rare stylebook you really want to read, cover to cover, for curiosity and pleasure. Shawver makes the basic rules of usage plain-the better to break them, when the need arises, with vigor and poise"--Salvatore Scibona
