Fourth For the Canadian Book Review Challenge

Slice me Some Truth:
An Anthology of Canadian Creative Nonfiction
Ed Luanne Armstrong
Zoe Landale

This is a book that surveys the genre of nonfiction in Canadian literature. The book will also serve as an introduction to the nonfiction genre. It has a useful cross-section for writers, students, and readers who are curious about creative nonfiction. It is gaining popularity in Canada as more and more writers embark on publishing in this genre.

Creative nonfiction includes memoir writing, personal essays, travel writing, nature writing, the lyric essay and so on. I love this genre and this book has taught me a lot about creative nonfiction.

The subject material for creative nonfiction is true and deep. It is different from fiction and nonfiction. Creative nonfiction is very individualistic and part of the larger literary nonfiction narrative.

Rating: 4 stars
