read/print the preface - >>

"In nine brilliant essays, Baxter displays his characteristic wit and intelligence as he muses about the influences of culture and politics on the art of storytelling."--Ploughshares

"[This Book] is a pleasure to read, and it performs an important function--by mucking around in the problems that plague contemporary fiction, Burning Down the House may spur both readers and writers first to a recognition of guilty complicity and then to constructive thought."--The New York Times Book Review
