Fiction and Truth in Transition: Writing the Present Past in South Africa and Argentina
LIT Verlag Münster, 2012 - 517 sidor
What can fiction tell us about the world that journalism and science cannot? This simple yet vast question is the starting-point for an interrogation of the relationship between literary fiction and society's dramatic transformation in South Africa and Argentina over the past several decades. The resulting discursive text borders on both journalism and literature, incorporating reportage, essay, and memoir. (Series: Freiburg Studies in Social Anthropology - Vol. 34)
