Descripción

From the work of the New Journalists in the 1960s, to the New Yorker essays of John McPhee, Susan Orlean, Atul Gawande, and a host of others, to narratives such as Mary Roach's Stiff, narrative nonfiction has come into its own. Yet writers looking for guidance on reporting and writing true stories have had few places to turn for advice. Now in Storycraft, Jack Hart, a former managing editor of the Oregonian who guided several Pulitzer Prize–winning narratives to publication, delivers what will certainly become the definitive guide to the methods and mechanics of crafting narrative nonfiction.

Hart covers what writers in this genre need to know, from understanding story theory and structure, to mastering point of view and such basic elements as scene, action, and character, to drafting, revising, and editing work for publication. Revealing the stories behind the stories, Hart brings listeners into the process of developing nonfiction narratives by sharing tips, anecdotes, and recommendations he forged during his decades-long career in journalism. From there, he expands the discussion to other well-known writers to show the broad range of texts, styles, genres, and media to which his advice applies.

Sobre el autor

Jack Hart lived the richest life in the poorest community, found the warmest of days in the coldest of seasons, experienced the healing of comedy under the sting of misfortune, and, in all, discovered the favors and unexpected pleasures bestowed from big worlds in small places.

    The book gets a five because of its valuable content. I wanted to give it a lower rating but the author doesn’t deserve that, he wrote good material. The audiobook would cut off 5 minutes before the end of the chapter and at the very end of the whole book! When I go back to where it left off it won’t play. I think it’s a problem that scribd has once in awhile because it’s not the first time this has happened with a audiobook from here.
