Description: â€œIntelligent but accessible, and often poignant . . . [by] the biggest talents on the essay and blog beat.â€ â€” Publishers Weekly (on Vol. 2) Anyone still asking, â€œWhat is creative nonfiction?â€ will find the answer in this collection of artfully crafted, true stories. Selected by Lee Gutkind, the â€œgodfather behind creative nonfiction,â€ and the staff of Creative Nonfiction , these storiesâ€”ranging from immersion journalism to intensely personal essaysâ€”illustrate the genreâ€™s power and potential. Edwidge Danticat recalls her Uncle MoÃ¯seâ€™s love of a certain four-letter word and finds in his abandonment of the word near the end of his life the true meaning of exile. In â€œLiterary Murder,â€ Julianna Baggott traces her roots as a novelist to her familyâ€™s â€œstrange, desperate (sometimes conniving and glorious) pastâ€ and writes about her decision, in The Madam , to kill off a character based on her grandfather. And Sean Rowe explains why, if you must get arrested, Selma, Alabama, is the place to do it. This exciting and expansive array of works and voices is sure to impress and delight.
