Crafting the Story
Beginnings, Middles, and EndsStreaming Video - 2005
How important is the opening line of a book? Does a writer always have to know what is going to happen next? Where should the line be drawn between historic fact and historical fiction? And what are the particular challenges of writing a biography? Drawing on the expertise of Edvard Radzinsky, Fay Weldon, Anson Cameron, John Lanchester, Nicholas Shakespeare, and other respected authors, this program answers each question with candor and wit-and judging from the authors' responses, there are as many ways to approach storywriting as there are writers.
