At its core, Geography is the study of place through time and space.

And stories are the study of persons through time and space.

Both pertain to change – and its impact on place/person.

Therefore, by my account, the Geography of Stories is : the study of persons in places over and through time and space.

or:  any time spent in another’s skin and space exploring their changes whilst challenging your own perceptions of life and it’s meaning. All topography included.

Or best yet:   A day well spent.

I am not writing a review but The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd is a great study of the geography of stories.
