I don’t see what the big deal is anyway. A story is just that, it’s a story. Whether it’s true or not, if it inspires some sort of emotion in you, makes you feel differently about something, then that is where the value lies. The ONLY difference is that it should go in a different section of the library. What makes this all the more bizarre is that this authors story was already compelling. If he had told the story as fiction then he may have told a good story and maintained his reputation. As it is now, he’ll probably have to refund his publisher. Comments are closed.
