Famous Writers School

(2006)
A novel by

 
Steven Carter has a genius for letting his characters speak for themselves, and here they do so quite literally. Wendell's oddball collection of students include Rio, an alluring blues singer on whom he quickly develops a crush; Linda Trane, an unhinged housewife who seems to be stalking him; and Dan, a truly talented author of hardboiled detective fiction. As Dan's gritty mystery arrives piece by piece, Wendell gets hooked on the story - and decides to dress it up in his own style in order to pass it off as his creation. Gradually, the slender threads of connection between each character become apparent, even as Wendell's imagination careens out of control. Carter skillfully weaves these narratives into a genre-bending romp that is at once reminiscent of Raymond Carver and Carl Hiaasen.
