A NOVELIST'S GUIDE TO REVISION About THE LAST DRAFT, A NOVELIST'S GUIDE TO REVISION (Penguin): “Sandra Scofield has written a needed book: not how to begin a novel, but how to get one into shape and on point. She is insightful on the importance of scene and ingenious on the value of summary and the role of interiority. She offers exercises for describing, evaluating, energizing, and enriching a draft in ways both minute and structural. For a novelist in that perplexing stage between a messy version and a viable manuscript, The Last Draft may be a godsend.” -Janet Burroway
