Description - Thrill Me by Benjamin Percy
In his first book of nonfiction, Benjamin Percy challenges the notion that literary and genre fiction are mutually exclusive. In fifteen essays on the craft of fiction, Percy looks to disparate sources to discover how contemporary writers engage issues of plot, suspense, momentum and the speculative, as well as character, setting and dialogue. An urgent and entertaining missive on craft, Thrill Me brims with Percy's distinctive blend of anecdotes, advice and close reading, all in the service of one dictum: Thrill the reader.
