Product description


"'I am overwhelmed by the immensity of [this] intellectual, literary, cultural and psychological achievement. [Booker has] encompassed the great European canon, mastered it, penetrated it and laid bare its anatomy and physiology.' Anthony Stevens"

Book Description

An astounding book which not only looks into the fundamentals of storytelling, but also the very roots of our culture and how plotlines reveal much about our inner psychological workings.
