This week we continue our Fall of Frauds season with a book that’s a kind of “fraudulent artifact.” Michael Martone’s book Michael Martone (published by FC2) is a series of stories in the form of contributor’s notes. We talk about some ways that writers can use existing forms to experiment with both fiction and nonfiction, and what makes these stories interesting, rather than gimmicky.
We also talk about some more literary (and non-literary) frauds, plus all our usual jibber jabber.
