Book Description Harper Perennial. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 192 pages. Dimensions: 7.9in. x 5.2in. x 0.6in.Living by Fiction is written for--and dedicated to--people who love literature. Dealing with writers such as Nabokov, Barth, Coover, Pynchon, Borges, Garca Mrquez, Beckett, and Calvino, Annie Dillard shows why fiction matters and how it can reveal more of the modern world and modern thinking than all the academic sciences combined. Like Joyce Carys 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 Dillards vivid writing, her humor, and the lively way in which she tackles the urgent questions of meaning in experience itself. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780060915445
