A Muse and a Maze: Writing as Puzzle, Mystery, and Magic

by Peter Turchi

Beautifully illustrated, A Muse and A Maze delights as it demystifies the craft of writing, likening it to puzzles of all kinds. This was my go-to book as I neared the end of a first draft of my own book. Pick it up and flip through the pages. Turchi's brilliance enables both writers and readers to glimpse the wizard behind the curtain. — Michaela

The Painter

by Peter Heller

The Painter is a very rich novel indeed, chock full of suspense while Stegner is chased by men set on retribution, quiet moments in nature while fly-fishing, and insights into the darks and lights of human nature. A warning, though: Don't pick this book up without understanding that you might just give up a night's sleep to finish it. — Susan
