Book Overview

Open your notebook, take out your pen, and welcome a bold new approach to teaching the art of great storytelling. In 27 lessons, drawn from 27 critical moments at the heart of 27 diverse narratives--from plays, novels, movies, television, and even songs and video games--Daniel Joshua Rubin unlocks the secrets of what makes a story work and then teaches us how to understand and use each principle in our own storytelling.

Rubin, an incisive and no BS teacher, writing consultant, and founder of the Story 27 Studio, expands our understanding of narrative by drilling into examples ranging from Hamlet to The Godfather, Parts I and I, from Harry Potter to an episode of South Park, and unearthing exactly what makes each scene tick. The result is a collection of priceless advice: Escalate Risk, with an example from Pulp Fiction. Write Characters to the Top of Their Intelligence, from the Eminem song Stan. Explore All Endings, from HBO's The Night Of. Attack Your Theme, from The Brothers Karamazov. Peel the Onion, from Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies. Clash Expectation with Reality, from Breaking Bad. After each principle comes a lesson in how to do it, plus a Mini Final Exam and Related Principles from other Read More chevron_right
