Screenwriting and Global Storytelling
"Written in a personal and engaging style... the book is revelatory as it leaps from one salient point to another, and as its title promises, embraces screenwriting across many nations. It is specifically targeted at screenwriters who tackle adapted-for-the-screen material (be it of ancient lore, legends, literature, fact-based events, biographies or other story staples), but also speaks to the screenwriter embarking on original material... Krasilovsky compels the reader to investigate, relate and employ the deep provenance of stories and to blend themes from various sources and ideas. She has created a text that all screenwriters will find of benefit."
-- From the book review by Jule Selbo (screenwriter and author of "Screenplay: Building Story through Character", Professor, California State University, Fullerton), Journal of Screenwriting, Vol.9 No.1, May 2018, 121-124:
