Writing topically: Socio-politics in Fiction.
Fiction is the most intimate of the arts, uniquely able to take the reader inside the minds of characters in a more granular and subjective way than film or even written memoir. It is the opposite of political or point-driven essay writing, which depends on public, quickly understood language based on consensual perception. How then can fiction effectively take on topicality without losing the deep strength of its subjective, intimate eye?
