Book Fight!

Tough love for literature

Episode 196: Fall of Frauds, Michael Martone, by Michael Martone

1 Comment

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.

As always, you can stream the episode right here on our site, or download the mp3 file. You can also find us in the iTunes store, or in just about any app you might use to listen to podcasts.

If you like the show, you can subscribe to our Patreon, which helps offset our costs and allows us to keep doing the podcast each week. In exchange for $5, you’ll also get access to a monthly bonus episode, Book Fight After Dark, in which we discuss the wide world of romance novels.
