A unique blend of a compelling story with insights into writing from a prize-winning author. Merle once showed great promise as an author. Now she teaches creative writing. As she tries not to quash the assorted ambitions of her hopeful students, her testosterone-fired colleague,... her lassitude-filled husband and their mysterious German lodger, she both imparts and demonstrates how to write a novel. At times it seems that everyone except her is busy living and writing, but Merle comes to see that life itself is an endless series of beginnings and endings. Drawn with compassion, humour and optimism, the characters keep us avidly reading while at the same time showing through multiple and subtle means the craft of creating a novel. Written by a prize-winning writer, who is also an experienced teacher, the overarching intelligence and wicked humour in this unique novel are a joy to read.
