Example of Narrative Voice in Novel Writing

Toni Lopopolo reads an excerpt from Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell as an example of good narrative voice in a novel. Book editor Shelly Lowenkopf talks about how narrative comes from the character, not the author. In other words, “Stay the f* out of your own novel.”

This is an excerpt from a Fiction Bootcamp Intensive.
