In his latest book, Hart (A Writer’s Coach: The Complete Guide to Writing Strategies That Work) focuses on narrative nonfiction, a genre he got to know well during his career as managing editor of theOregonian. Each chapter covers different aspects of narrative storytelling for burgeoning writers who want to hone their technique and find their voice. Hart provides excerpts and diagrams to help writers execute scene, character, and action. The chapter devoted to structure is particularly helpful. As in Hart’s first book, most of the examples are drawn from his experiences collaborating with successful writers. He also discusses distinctions among different forms of narrative and ethical dilemmas faced by creative nonfiction writers. VERDICT This much-needed book fills a niche, particularly as it also covers the editor’s perspective. Beginning and advanced writers, particularly journalists, will find useful tips on how to make their writing resonate with readers.
