Non-Fiction Friday is a link-up where you can find all of the awesome non-fiction happenings of the week. Be sure to link-up your non-fiction posts too!
Non-Fiction News and Resources
- One trend I’m noticing in nonfiction news lately is the comparison of the fiction and nonfiction writing processes, including this article which suggests that nonfiction authors borrow fiction techniques to give their work more emotional impact
- This articles discusses a worrying blending of fiction and nonfiction, intended to make books appeal to children but perhaps only blurring the facts
- Two very interesting articles last week discussed the liberties that are allowed in creative nonfiction
- Finally, we have some fantastic new releases coming in the next week:
- Dataclysm: Who We Are (When We Think No One’s Looking) (via Shannon at River City Reading)
- 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi
- The Hills of Chianti: The Story of a Tuscan Winemaking Family, in Seven Bottles
- Death of a King: The Real Story of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Final Year
- Lincoln’s Gamble: How the Emancipation Proclamation Changed the Course of the Civil War

13 Hours sound super interesting, I’m definitely going to be looking out for that one.
Thanks for linking for me 😉
I typically don’t read books that are quite as current as 13 Hours, but I’ve loved Zuckoff previous books, so I expect this to be wonderful too. Thanks for reviewing such a great looking book 🙂
I like the sound of The Hills of Chianti, myself!
Me too! I’ve been living in the Finger Lakes wine region of NY for about a year and I love learning more about wine.
I have an arc of Dataclysm that I’m going to try to start and review really soon! I love books that take stats and data and show us how they are relevant and indicative of bigger trends. I have a degree in psychology, so stuff like this is really interesting to me!
I’ll be excited to hear what you think! I’m a grad student in computational biology and I also love big data and statistics, especially those that say something interesting about the world. I think this sounds like a very interesting book!
A lot of readers seems to be loving Dataclysm. It sounds like such an intriguing book!
I think so too! Of the upcoming books I listed, that’s definitely the one I’m most excited about.
