Synopsis: 99 Ways to Tell a Story is a series of engrossing one-page comics that tell the same story ninety-nine different ways. Inspired by Raymond Queneau’s 1947 Exercises in Style, a mainstay of creative writing courses, Madden’s project demonstrates the expansive range of possibilities available to all storytellers. Readers are taken on an enlightening tour—sometimes amusing, always surprising—through the world of the story.

Writers and artists in every media will find Madden’s collection especially useful, even revelatory. Here is a chance to see the full scope of opportunities available to the storyteller, each applied to a single scenario: varying points of view, visual and verbal parodies, formal reimaginings, and radical shuffling of the basic components of the story. Madden’s amazing series of approaches will inspire storytellers to think through and around obstacles that might otherwise prevent them from getting good ideas onto the page. 99 Ways to Tell a Story provides a model that will spark productive conversations among all types of creative people: novelists, screenwriters, graphic designers, and cartoonists.

About the Author: Matt Madden started self-publishing minicomics in the early 1990s. He published his first graphic novel, Black Candy (Black Eye Books), in 1998, and in 2001 published Odds Off (Highwater Books). Madden lives in Brooklyn with his wife, author and cartoonist Jessica Abel. He works in comics and illustration; he also teaches comics at the School of Visual Arts and Yale University. His latest work appears in A Fine Mess, his biannual series published by Alternative Comics.
