"Facing the Facts: An Exploration of Non-Fictional Prose” is the title of my English class. What is the definition of real? How do you define fiction and non-fiction? To what extent do we trust the facts presented in non-fiction to tell us the truth? These are some of the ideas that we are exploring in class. We try to dig in the layers of words to find the truth, the reality and the facts in the non-fictional prose that we read. “Reality Hunger” written by David Shields, is the first book that we encountered in class.
