Truthful Fictions: Conversations with American Biographical Novelists PDF

Michael Lackey

In this new collection of interviews, some of Americas most prominent novelists identify the key intellectual developments that led to the rise of the contemporary biographical novel, discuss the kind of historical truth this novel communicates, indicate why this narrative form is superior to the traditional historical novel, and reflect on the ideas and characters central to their individual works. These interviews do more than just define an innovative genre of contemporary fiction. They provide a precise way of understanding the complicated relationship and pregnant tensions between contextualized thinking and historical representation, interdisciplinary studies and truth production, and fictional reality and factual constructions. By focusing on classical and contemporary debates regarding the nature of the historical novel, this volume charts the forces that gave birth to a new incarnation of this genre.

Rebecca Kanner holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Fiction Writing from Washington University in St. Louis. Her writing has won an Associated Writing Programs Award, a Loft Mentorship Award and 2013 and 2016 Minnesota State Arts Board Grants.
