Don’t miss

this wonderful review by Jennifer McDonald in today’s Times of a what sounds like a marvelous book. The review provides a nuanced, informed discussion of the relationship between Facts and Truth. The book is called The Lifespan of a Fact, by John D’Agata (a fabulist, who, mercifully, makes no claims to be a journalist) and Jim Fingal (a fact-checker who takes that specialty to new heights).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have to say that I side with those who say that it is possible to stick to non-fiction and still create great works. I sure hope so.
