Summary
  • Style and Story is for those who wish to craft nonfiction texts that do more than simply relay facts and arguments. The author explains how writers can employ literary tools and strategies to strengthen their work. With advice gleaned from years of teaching writing to graduate students, Pyne offers pragmatic guidance on how to create powerful nonfiction, whether for a academic or popular audience. Each chapter offers samples that span genres, showcasing the best kinds of nonfiction writing. Pyne analyzes these examples that will help writers understand how they can improve their nonfiction through their choice of voice, words, structure, metaphors, and narrative. Pyne builds on his previous guide, Voice and Vision, expanding the range of topics to include openings and closings, humor and satire, historical writing, setting scenes, writing about technical matters and deep details, long and short narration, reading for craft, and thoughts on writing generally. He also includes in this volume a set of exercises to practice writing techniques.--from book description, Amazon.com
