this is taking me a very long time to read. (I got rather bogged down in the chapter on sentence structure, but the chapters on narrator and character are far more lively.) Prose, obviously, is a writer as well as a teacher, and this is a sort of textbook. I find it goes better when I remember that, like reading any criticism, I don't have to agree with her and am allowed to laugh at her when she gets a bit highfalutin. There are a few annoying instances in which she didn't get the rights to reprint some of the passages of writing she's trying to exemplify, but other than that (and the murky chapter on sentences) I'm enjoying this one so far. Definitely not a light summer read.
