Living by FictionBook - 1982
Living by Fiction is written for - and dedicated to - people who love literature. Dealing with writers such as Nabokov, Barth, Coover, Borges, Garcia Marquez, Beckett, and Calvino, Annie Dillard shows how contemporary fiction works and why traditional fiction will always move us. Like Joyce Cary's Art and Reality, this is a book by a writer on the issues raised by the art of literature. Readers of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and Holy the Firm will recognize Dillard's vivid writing, her humor, and the lively way in which she tackles the urgent questions of meaning in experience itself.
