Abstract:

From the Publisher: A stellar host of writers explore the cornerstone of fiction writing: character. The Book of Other People is about character. Twenty-five or so outstanding writers have been asked by Zadie Smith to make up a fictional character. By any measure, creating character is at the heart of the fictional enterprise, and this book concentrates on writers who share a talent for making something recognizably human out of words (and, in the case of the graphic novelists, pictures). But the purpose of the book is variety: straight "realism"--If such a thing exists-is not the point. There are as many ways to create character as there are writers, and this anthology features a rich assortment of exceptional examples. The writers featured in The Book of Other People include: Aleksandar Hemon; Nick Hornby; Hari Kunzru; Toby Litt; David Mitchell; George Saunders; Colm Toibin; Chris Ware, and more.
