The Hero

Lee's first non-fiction book is a 64-page essay which explores the endurance of heroes from Achilles to Bond, and shows how the myth of the hero is a fundamental part of what makes us human. Hero stories continue to shape our world – we need them now more than ever. Scalpel-sharp on the roots of storytelling and enlightening on the history and science of myth, this is helpful for anyone trying to write or understand fiction.
