Description: In this collection of ten essays, Oz shares his rich and rewarding experience as both writer and teacher. As he analyzes the opening sections of novels and short stories by such varied writers as Agnon, Gogol, Kafka, Chekhov, Garcia Marquez, Raymond Carver, Oz instructs, challenges, and guides. He writes about the notion of "beginnings" in terms of writing fiction, what the beginning might "mean" to the author and how important it is. And best of all -- he entertains. He highlights opening paragraphs in which authors make promises they may or may not deliver later in the work, or deliver in unexpected ways, or deliver more than they have promised. Or they simply turn the initial promise upside down. A game that miraculously and playfully engages both writer and reader.
