A book of interviews with various writers of short stories. Lots of good stuff here on two of my favorite topics--where do the ideas come from and how do you find the ability to write them down. I was struck by how many writers asserted that to be a truly great story it has the surprise the author somewhere, has to go in some unforeseen direction. Lots of good--and contradictory--thoughts on writer's block as well. I love books full of contradictory thoughts.
