This week's question is:
Is there such a thing as literary non-fiction? If so, how do you define it? Any examples?
I absolutely agree that there is literary non-fiction. There are so many a fine example that I find to be truly absorbing narratives that are based on fact. It need not be a dreary and deathly boring overview of something true that's happened -- it can be wildly fun, engaging, and capturing the spirit of education and adventure.
Below are my my favorites that are more current and what I would place in my literary non-fiction category.
What do you think?
A Moveable Feast...Read my review of my favorite Hemingway by clicking here.
The City of Falling Angels...Berent's quirky characters amidst the Venetian waterways and alleys.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil...My favorite Berendt work, and made my visit to Savannah, GA that much more alluring.
The Devil in the White City...Chicago's World Fair of 1893 and H.H. Holmes, the serial killer who preyed on the innocent women who traveled to Chicago. I hear there is to be a movie soon, with Leonardo DiCaprio set to play H.H. Holmes
