"A story is a living thing." So begins "Way of the Screenwriter, " a book with a novel, refreshing approach to the long-practiced art of screenwriting. Amnon Buchbinder brilliantly reinterprets screenwriting as a way for writers to capture a story's essence, thus giving it greater meaning and fascination for the audience. Full of practical examples and exercises to enhance the skills of both beginning and experienced screenwriters, the guide is far more than a how-to book. It is a comprehensive work that covers screenwriting from virtually every conceivable angle, while also offering a different, compelling approach. It is a book that illuminates the why behind the how and points the way toward a deeper understanding of how stories work on the screen. Perhaps most importantly, "Way of the Screenwriter" treats screenwriting not as some disreputable task, but rather as the fine art it is: the convergence of storytelling, writing, and filmmaking.

"Whatever his subject--favorites include porn, punctuation and the poetry of Frank O'Hara--the goal is always to jigger logic and language free of its moorings . . . His great and singular appeal is this fealty to his own desire and imagination . . . Figuring it out, after all, is a life sentence." --Parul Sehgal, The New York Times "Toward what goal do I aspire, ever, but collision? Always accident, concussion, bodies butting together . . . By collision I also mean metaphor and metonymy: operations of slide and slip and transfuse." Through a collection of intimate reflections (on art, punctuation, eyeglasses, color, dreams, celebrity, corpses, porn, and translation) and "assignments" that encourage pleasure, attentiveness, and acts of playful making, poet, artist, critic, novelist, and performer Wayne Koestenbaum enacts twenty-six ecstatic collisions between his mind and the world. A subway passenger's leather bracelet prompts musings on the German word for "stranger"; Montaigne leads to the memory of a fourth-grade friend's stinky feet. Wayne dreams about a handjob from John Ashbery, swims next to Nicole Kidman, reclaims Robert Rauschenberg's squeegee, and apotheosizes Marguerite Duras as a destroyer of sentences. He directly proposes assignments to readers: "Buy a one-dollar cactus, and start anthropomorphizing it. Call it Sabrina." "Describe an ungenerous or unkind act you have committed." "Find in every orgasm an encyclopedic richness . . . Reimagine doing the laundry as having an orgasm, and reinterpret orgasm as not a tiny experience, temporally limited, occurring in a single human body, but as an experience that somehow touches on all of human history." Figure It Out is both a guidebook for, and the embodiment of, the practices of pleasure, attentiveness, art, and play from "one of the most original and relentlessly obsessed cultural spies writing today" (John Waters).

The reason one writes isn't the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say. F. Scott Fitzgerald Entering university can be challenging and confusing for new students as they encounter large first-year classes and demanding independent study responsibilities for the first time. Writing English with style provides essential skills for university success by honing writing, reading, researching and studying competencies. Writing English with style is has been upgraded and expanded, addressing new areas such as listening and note taking skills and the Chicago Manual of Style referencing system. Recognising that understanding sentence construction, paragraph development and essay writing are only as sound as the grammar that is used, an entire chapter is devoted to reviewing and revising those necessary building blocks of communication. Each chapter has been revamped to provide more helpful examples and workable assignments to aid the reader in applying the skills acquired. Writing English with style is aimed at first-year college students, but will be equally valuable to the final year or postgraduate second language speaker.
