The Golden Theme
How stories reveal the essence of our humanity and how authors can infuse their writing with universal appeal
Author Brian McDonald shows how sharing stories is essential to human survival and how stories that get at fundamental truth help us share our deepest commonalities.
“Brian McDonald is one of the world’s wisest teachers of the elements that create great storytelling….If you a writer in any genre, read The Golden Theme. If you are a non-writing reader who just loves stories, read it. If you are a teacher, share it with your students. And give it to friends, who will thank you for the clarity Brian McDonald so generously brings to our lives.”
