This case has not been made before. The personal and idiosyncratic tone of the book comes from a set of presentations made at a Smithsonian symposium on storytelling in April 2001. It combines the liveliness and freshness of spoken English with the legibility of a ready-friendly text. Interviews with all the authors done in 2004 add a new dimension to the material, allowing the authors to reflect on their ideas and clarify points or highlight ideas that may have changed or deepened over time."--BOOK JACKET.
