Summary
In the world of literature, weak plots are lamentable, but weak characters are fatal. "You've got to be involved with them," says Vikram Seth. "You can't find them boring. If you find them boring, forget it. Gathering the insights of Seth, Dorothy Dunnett, Emma Tom, Neal Drinnan, Claire Messud, and other experienced authors, this program spells out the essentials of characterization, from creating realistic dialogue to developing a character's personality. The pros and cons of basing a character on a real person are weighed as well
