Etta's Books Yes, this is fiction. The author writes about his grandfather's life and makes a connection with his own childhood. Even though I think the author has made up details and filled in the gaps he found in the journals of his grnadfather, I consider it as fiction.
Edward Irons Like so much writing, it is a mixture. I read it as a memoire where the author recreated the gaps. I assumed he actually did receive his grandfather's journal. Was that not the case?
