Join Trinity University Press for Peter Turchi, author of (Don’t) Stop Me if You’ve Heard This Before and Other Essays on Writing Fiction and Maps of the Imagination: The Writer as Cartographer, in conversation with musician Reed Turchi. In (Don’t) Stop Me If You’ve Heard This Before, Turchi combines personal narrative and close reading of a wide range of stories and novels to reveal how writers create the fiction that matters to us. Building on his much-loved Maps of the Imagination, Turchi leads readers and writers to an understanding of how the intricate mechanics of storytelling—including shifts in characters’ authority, the subtle manipulation of images, careful attention to point of view, the strategic release of information, and even digressing from the (apparent) story—can create powerful effects.
