Based on what you've read so far, especially "How to Tell a True War Story," how do you think the narrator differentiates between fiction and nonfiction? Central questions in our class this year have been about truth, journalism, and where the line is between fact and fiction. This book is presented as a work of fiction, but those questions still arise. How do you think the narrator answers the questions of the role of a journalist? The role of a historian? The role of a storyteller? In a comment to this post, respond.
Please bring your copy of this text and The Great Gatsby to class on Monday.
