About the Book:

The long-awaited third volume of Robert McKee's trilogy on the art of fiction.

Following up his perennially bestselling writers' guide Story and his inspiring exploration of the art of verbal action in Dialogue, the most sought-after expert in the field of storytelling brings his insights to the creation of compelling characters and the design of their surrounding casts.

Character explores the universe of character and cast design: the dimensionality, complexity, and arcing of a protagonist, as well as the invention of orbiting major characters, all encircled by a cast of service and supporting roles.

What people say:

"Robert McKee was perfectly happy as a writer. He didn't expect to become perhaps the most famous writing instructor in Hollywood, played by Brian Cox in 'Adaptation', and known for his work with the likes of Peter Jackson, 'Beautiful Mind' screenwriter Akiva Goldsman and John Cleese." — CNN
