This is no nonsense writing advice and commentary from a tremendous literary talent. However, he loves comic books and horror and thrillers too. So there’s very little pretense and snobbery on display (at least so far, only about halfway in). Thrill Me should easily land (and remain) in my top ten books on writing. If you’re a writer, do yourself a favor and pick this one up. I doubt you’ll regret it.
Thrill Me on amazon. “An urgent and entertaining missive on craft, Thrill Me brims with Percy’s distinctive blend of anecdotes, advice, and close reading, all in the service of one dictum: Thrill the reader.”
