Carolyn Lewis's The Novel: A Perfect Recipe will be indispensable to all aspiring writers. Her knowledge and experience are so brilliantly shared in this book, which is informative, enjoyable to read and full of ideas. If you need a perfect guide to help you write that first novel, this is the one to buy." Ali Reynolds - Ali Reynolds Literary Consultancy "The presentation is lively, and everything about this book is refreshing and vibrant. The overall task is clear, as are the individual exercises. The text sparkles with erudition, good sense and experience... Carolyn herself says that there is no magic formula to writing a novel (possibly no perfect recipe either) but she shows us ways of seeing and noticing, ways of practising, ways to edit and take pride in our craft, ways of bringing it all together." Geraldine Taylor - MA, MBAC, award winning writer and BBC Wildlife Writer of the Year 2000 An extended version of this review appears in Bristol Review of Books issue 13, Spring 2010
