G4: Narrative Non Fiction

Narrative non-fiction

Narrative nonfiction—also known as creative nonfiction or literary nonfiction—is usually defined as nonfiction that uses the techniques and style of fiction (characters, plot, conflict, scene-setting) to tell a true story. Narrative nonfiction books can cover just about any topic, but if you pick one up you’re almost guaranteed to have a great reading experience.
