A charming and intelligent comedy. We follow the two sides to Arabella’s life, her teaching a creative writing class, which is made up of quite an eclectic bunch and the relationship she has with her dying mother who she visits in a nursing home. Thoroughly enjoyable and touching.

Synopsis

The Fiction Class by Susan Breen

Despite being named after a Georgette Heyer heroine, would-be novelist Arabella's life is not what it might be. Thirty-six, twice engaged but still single, none of the New Yorkers on her Creative Writing course show any signs of novel-writing promise -- but then, to be frank, neither does she. However, hope, and love, may be closer than she had realised -- and, who knows, maybe even inspiration.

Reviews

'Author Arabella runs a creative writing class in New York, but life isn't going to plan. She's 36, twice engaged, but still single, and most of her pupils are hopeless. Fearing her life will never be as good as a juicy novel, will Arabella ever find love? If you like reading-or fancy yourself as a writer- you'll enjoy this'
