Susan Bell offers fresh insight on the problems that bedevil every writer. The sections on the editing collaboration between F. Scott Fitzgerald & Maxwell Perkins for The Great Gatsby are especially inspiring for writers and good readers.

Ms. Bell shares her deep understanding (and love) of editing in a lively and thought-provoking style. She touches on virtually every facet of editing, including the often overlooked topic of "macro-editing" (read: seeing and the big picture). She makes copious use of F. Scott's Fitzgerald's own editing of The Great Gatsby, illustrating how astute revisions can help create a masterpiece. If nothing else, it's comforting to know that even a great writer doesn't always get it right the first time. I've read many books on writing, and this is one of the best, hands down.
