Nino Ricci talks about “Setting as Character” at New York’s Center for Fiction as part of Craftwork, the Center’s series of talks by some of today’s most exciting writers on the nuts and bolts of creating great fiction. Presented in partnership with One Story.
From verdant jungles to frozen mountaintops to isolated prairies, settings in fiction can be more than just evocative, they can become characters in their own right. Nino Ricci will draw on his own use of the Galapagos in his award winning novel The Origin of Species, and show how his real life trip to Darwin’s islands became central to the novel’s vision.
