The Elements of Narrative Nonfiction
How to Write & Sell the Novel of True EventsPaperback - 2009
Name some of the huge best-selling books over the years -- In Cold Blood; All the President's Men; The Perfect Storm; Black Hawk Down; Longitude; Jarhead -- and they all have one thing in common; they all read like novels. Author and agent Peter Rubie shows the reader how to join journalistic research with riveting, character-driven prose to create narrative non-fiction. This is the only book to focus on writing and marketing the narrative non-fiction "novel." (An earlier version of this book was published under the title Telling the Story: How to Write and Sell Narrative Non-fiction. This version has been extensively reworked.)"
