A Companion to Narrative
A bit of self-promotion here: check out an excellent new anthology, The Cambridge Companion to Narrative, edited by David Herman. The book is an introductory overview of the study of narrative across media and tackling a wide range of issues. My chapter, “Film and Television Narrative,” includes an analysis of two key examples, The Wizard of Oz and Lost, to demonstrate how moving image storytelling differs from literature and other fictional forms. I’m proud of the piece, and am even more honored to be included in a line-up of big name narrative scholars from around the world. So check it out and let me know what you think about my essay (or the whole book).
