Read full description of the books:
Of Fiction and Faith features in-depth, personal interviews between W. Dale Brown and twelve American writers-from celebrated award winners to those just beginning to find readers. Conducted over a five-year period, these face-to-face interviews provide a window into the personal and literary lives of some of our most significant writers. Here the writers candidly discuss their careers and published works as well as their works in progress and their general views of the profession. In each case, the authors also talk about the intersection between faith and fiction and the role of religion in the work of a writer. Featuring interviews with: Doris Betts Frederick Buechner Robert Olen Butler Will Campbell Elizabeth Dewberry Clyde Edgerton Denise Giardina Robert Goldsborough Jon Hassler Garrison Keillor Peggy Payne Walter Wangerin Of Fiction and Faith also includes photographs, a brief introduction to each of the writers, and a chronological listing of their work. Taken together, the interviews provide a perceptive analysis of contemporary literature and a challenge to the practice of labeling books as "Christian" or "secular." In addition to serving those who are fans of one or more of these writers, this engaging volume will prove to be an excellent resource for those interested in finding quality fiction for personal reading. "Cozy fireside conversations with a dozen contemporary writers on their faith, carefully arranged and thoughtfully conceived." - Kirkus Reviews
