Desire and Domestic Fictionargues that far from being removed from historical events, novels by writers from Richardson to Woolf were themselves agents of the rise of the middle class. Drawing on texts that range from 18th-century female conduct books and contract theory to modern psychoanalytic case histories and theories of reading, Armstrong shows that the emergence of a particular form of female subjectivity capable of reigning over the household paved the way for the establishment of institutions which today are accepted centers of political power. Neither passive subjects nor embattled rebels, the middle-class women who were authors and subjects of the major tradition of British fiction were among the forgers of a new form of power that worked in, and through, their writing to replace prevailing notions of "identity" with a gender-determined subjectivity. She also examines the works of such novelists as Richardson, Jane Austen, and the Bront s to reveal the ways in which these authors rewrite the domestic practices and sexual relations of the past to create the historical context through which modern institutional power would seem not only natural but also humane, and therefore to be desired.

- Have you ever read a book and yearned to know more about the author? - Do you wonder what writers the authors are reading/have read? - Have you wondered what the differences are between writing a novel and a short story? - Do you wonder how authors develop their characters and the place in which their stories occur? - Or perhaps you are you a writer and you would like advice from a master... Ten years ago when she decided to write a novel Sherry Ellis didn’t know where or how to begin her journey. Without benefit of an MFA or prior writing courses she decided to take a writing course at a community education program. During the next two years she studied privately with two writing coaches, including a poet who had been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. She then took several writing workshops at summer writing programs across the United States, which were interspersed with attendance at mini-writing workshops in greater Boston. She studied with Jill McCorkle, Ron Carlson, Amy Bloom, Margot Livesey, Kathleen Spivack and Fred Leebron, eager to develop her craft and learn as much as she could about the art of writing fiction. Conducting author interviews was not part of her plan, but one day when she was perusing a writing publication she came across an announcement about an upcoming workshop in which author interviews would be the focus. Motivated by her long-term love of fiction, her ever-expanding love of writing, and her quest for authorial knowledge, she decided to take the workshop. Initially she interviewed Paul Lisicky and Jill McCorkle, writers with whom she had already studied. After these interviews were accepted by a prestigious art magazine and literary journal, she interviewed other writers with whom she had studied: Ron Carlson and Margot Livesey. Ellis then started reaching out to authors she had never met before: Edward P. Jones, Julia Glass, Steve Almond, Amy Bloom, Chris Abani, to name a few. And the amazing thing was that the majority of authors she approached agreed to be interviewed. After she realized she had nearly enough interviews for an anthology the concept of Illuminating Fiction was born. The interviews contained in Illuminating Fiction include unique questions drawn from the text of the authors’ work, questions about narrative voice, character, place, point of view, plot, revision, questions about the arc of the story/novel, questions about writing process, questions about the trajectory of the writer’s career, and questions about the role and importance of writing courses and mentoring. Interviewed authors also provided their opinions of quotes about writing and creativity by other authors and artists, and they respond to questions about the challenges they face in developing their craft. The reader is thereby able to gain an intimate and specific understanding of the writer’s words and craft, and what was going on in the author’s mind as they created their novels, short stories, and poems. Edward P. Jones has been kind enough to contribute an early draft of The Known World for inclusion in the introductory section of Illuminating Fiction.
