The Anatomy of Story


John Truby has written an excellent book that breaks down the basic steps required to tell a compelling tale. Covering story space and time, Truby carefully documents why telling the how and why of human life is a monumental job – but one that can be accomplished with care. His model is both perceptive and practical, focusing on the Hero/ine’s moral and emotional growth. The book is a survival manual to negotiate the complexities of story structure.
