A story that appeals due to its larger mythic features. The life's journey. Realizing one's purpose. Making many false turns and starts on the way to reaching beyond oneself. Trying on lots of early, incorrect notions of what one wants to be, and actually finding a `true' identity through trial, suffering, loss, stupid mistakes (that we all make, in large or small forms) and hard, hard recovery - driven by grace, w/ some small modicum of luck thrown in.
