Overview

Elements of Narrative Nonfiction: How to Write and Sell the Novel of True Events by Peter Rubie

Name some of the huge bestselling 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 nonfiction. This is the only book to focus on writing and marketing the narrative nonfiction "novel." (An earlier version of this book was published under the title "Telling the Story: How to Write and Sell Narrative Nonfiction." This version has been extensively reworked.)
