Editorial Reviews

Review

 

“Filled with excellent examples and lively contributor interviews, Jill Talbot’s playful and illuminating Metawritings: Toward a Theory of Nonfiction clearly delineates the key differences (and similarities) between the meta-acts of fiction and nonfiction. A fascinating anthology, front to back.”—Dinty W. Moore, author, Between Panic & Desire

 



 

“Jill Talbot has not only assembled some terrific pieces of writing, but she has also provided provocative, fascinating interviews. Talbot reads books like someone who passionately enjoys storytelling. She is unafraid of complex, layered ideas concerning the relationships among author, text, reader, and the vexing questions of veracity. I very much enjoyed this book.”—Steve Almond, author, God Bless America
