First Thursday Book Buffet

My Story: Autobiographical fiction

Novelists write what they know-- and often their imaginings are rooted in their own experience. 

Why are these books novels and not memoirs?  What kind of truth does fiction allow that straight autobiography does not?

Which do you prefer?

Bring along a brownbag lunch and a book on the theme.  A selection is on display, or you may bring another favorite to discuss
