Even as he has forged his path with innovative novels and stories, Charles Baxter has contributed to our understanding of literature with such books as Burning Down the House. Sharing years of wisdom on what makes fiction work, Baxter explores Haruki Murakami and other fabulist writers; the function of charisma—in literature, but also politics—and goes behind the scenes with "Toxic Narratives and the Bad Workshop." Baxter closes with two personal essays: the story of a car crash, and an introspective "letter to a young poet."

"Baxter's voice is erudite, witty, and humble, and he brings his observations together with smart quips on the writing life…. Budding novelists, take note."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
