Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited follow-up to the perennially best-selling writers' guide Story, from the most sought-after expert in the art of storytelling.
Robert McKee's popular writing workshops have earned him an international reputation. The list of alumni with Oscars runs off the page. The cornerstone of his program is his singular book, Story, which has defined how we talk about the art of story creation.
Now, in Dialogue, McKee offers the same in-depth analysis for how characters speak on the screen, on the stage, and on the page in believable and engaging ways. From Macbeth to Breaking Bad, McKee deconstructs key scenes to illustrate the strategies and techniques of dialogue.
Dialogue applies a framework of incisive thinking to instruct the prospective writer on how to craft artful, impactful speech. Famous McKee alumni include Peter Jackson, Jane Campion, Geoffrey Rush, Paul Haggis, the writing team for Pixar, and many others.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

The Class you Wish you took in Writing

I learned more about storytelling, dialogue, and characterization from this audiobook than any writing course I have taken.

A wealth of content

Just finished - there is so much information that on the second read through I'll need to sit down and take notes. This book was recommended by the guys on The Self Publishing Podcast and I am happy I took them up on their suggestion. This book is excellent for beginning writers and will also double as a fabulous reference text. Writing dialogue is tough and this is a great resource.
