In piece after piece he explains how he separates novelistic wheat from chaff, genuine fiction from fakery. A consummate teacher, Gardner examines contemporary writers-Bellow, Nabokov, Roth, Cheever, Woiwode, Oates, Updike, and other major authors-with the same critical gut generous eye with which he graded his students' writing assignments.
