Ernest Hemingway says, “Before I read The Creative Writer, I knew nothing about the craft. I was going to give A Farewell to Arms a happy ending. But then Boris Fishman taught me everything I needed to know about writing, editing, revising, bullfighting, marlin fishing, and the way that northern-Italian pasta tastes when you eat it cold, in the autumn morning, as you wait for the Austrian artillery to begin firing at your trench.”
