Overview Ut og stjæle lesere

A new edition of Henrik H. Langeland’s handbook on how to write a novel is finally here! What makes a good story? What techniques do authors use to create such immersive narratives? Why is it that we find some stories boring, while others captivate us?

Reviews Ut og stjæle lesere

«Som kritiker rødmer jeg når jeg ser hvor selvsagt og hjemmevant Langeland beveger seg blant de litterære virkemidlene man selv snubler omkring i når man skal prøve å beskrive litterær kvalitet.»

Atle Christiansen, Aftenposten
