How negotiable is a fact in nonfiction? In 2003, an essay by John D'¬"Agata was rejected by the magazine that commissioned it due to factual inaccuracies. That essay'¬ ;which eventually became the foundation of D'¬"Agata'¬"s critically acclaimed About a Mountain'¬ ;was accepted by another magazine, The Believer, but not before they handed it to their own fact-checker, Jim Fingal. What resulted from that assignment was seven years of arguments, negotiations, and revisions as D'¬"Agata and Fingal struggled to navigate the boundaries of literary nonfiction. This book reproduces D'¬"Agata'¬"s essay, along with D'¬"Agata and Fingal'¬"s extensive correspondence. What emerges is a brilliant and eye-opening meditation on the relationship between '¬Struth'¬ and '¬Saccuracy'¬ and a penetrating conversation about whether it is appropriate for a writer to substitute one for the other.
