This book describes and evaluated the ever-intensifiying uneasiness felt by contemporary readers and critics when they confront real people in fictional texts. The book's range and depth of analysis is impressive. The fortunes of Dutch Schultz, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Richard Nixon at the hands of novelists, dramatists, film makers and composers receive close attention, and so do fictional representations of biographers themselves.
