Surviving Crisis: Twenty Prominent Authors Write about Events That Shaped Their Livesby Lee Gutkind (Editor)
The literature of reality also known as creative nonfiction is the fastest-growing literary genre in the country today. Expressed in the form of essays, memoirs, articles, documentary drama, literary journalism, & narrative history, it dramatizes the truth as accurately as reportage yet is as compelling & personal as the best fiction. Highlighting events that proved to be turning points or memorable moments of catharsis & personal growth, the stories in Surviving Crisis provide nuggets of insight from which all readers will gather wisdom, & from which practicing writers will gain the courage to put pen to paper, culling the essence of story from their own lives.
