Look! It’s John D’Agata and Jim Fingal. They are talking about The Lifespan of a Fact at McNally Jackson right this minute.

Probably no longer happening right this minute (I’m not going to make a joke about fact-checking), but there they were!

Luckily for you guys Tumblr doesn’t really time-stamp.

John D’Agata is speaking - being interviewed/conversed with - on campus tomorrow night.
Fifty angry nonfiction students will be in the front rows. 
"Non­fiction essentially means ‘not art,’ since the word fiction is derived from the Latin fictio, which itself means ‘to form, to shape, to arrange’ — a pretty fundamental activity in art. So by calling something ‘non-fiction’ you are saddling the genre with a label that means it’s incapable of doing what art is fundamentally supposed to do.”
Go ahead, D’Agata. Try that on us.
