The Hid­den Ma­chin­ery: Es­says on Writ­ing (Tin House Books, July 2017) by Mar­got Livesey

Each of the ten es­says in The Hid­den Ma­chin­ery is rooted in close read­ings of au­thors such as Jane Austen, Toni Morrison, Tom Stop­pard, and Vir­ginia Woolf, from whom Livesey, the New York Times best­selling au­thor of eight nov­els, draws in­valu­able lessons about rhythm in di­a­logue, the pit­falls of re­search, cre­at­ing in­deli­ble char­ac­ters, and much more about the in­ner work­ings of fic­tion.
