The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film - Michael Ondaatje - Knopf
Anyone who has written a novel, or a screenplay, will find much to value in these exchanges between Michael Ondaatje and Walter Murch. I'm in the middle of editing my novel, American Gothic Chicago, and this book couldn't be more timely. Highly recommended!
Impro - Improvisation and the Theatre - Keith Johnstone with an introduction by Irving Wardle - Routledge
Improv plays an important role in the novel I'm currently working on, Under the Picasso. Johnstone provides great exercises and insight into improvisational techniques in this book. I'm grateful to have it in hand.
