Praise for Noah Lukeman's Books
THE FIRST FIVE PAGES
"Novice and amateur writers alike will benefit from literary agent Lukeman’s lucid advice in this handy, inexpensive little book. Carrying the craft of writing beyond Strunk and White’s classic Elements of Style, this book should find a wide audience: public libraries sponsoring writers’ groups and workshops will want multiple copies."
--Library Journal (Highly Recommended)
"Intelligent, important, valuable and entertaining instructions....It should be read by all novice writers--and by those whose books are already published but intend to write more."
--Richard Marek, Former Editorial Director of Kirkus Reviews
"I have to tell you, [The First Five Pages] is one of the best [books] I’ve read. I’ve written (and seen published) pretty close to a dozen novels in as many years… but I wish I had read Lukeman’s book when I began writing fiction. I’m glad I did now. It has helped, immediately….Lukeman’s editorial eye is sharp. If every novelist and short story writer in this country had Lukeman as an editor, we’d have a lot more readable prose out there.… The First Five Pages should be on every writer’s shelf. This is the real thing."
