One thought on “X-Ray Reading

  1. I love this:
    >I’ll argue here, perhaps controversially, that nonfiction narratives, like magic tricks, are hurt by excessive transparency. The suspension of disbelief required of the experience of all literature requires a degree of trust by readers, which can be achieved, I’ll argue, with neither opacity nor transparency, but with translucence.

    Personally, I think this happens more often in newspapers and less often in magazines and as a writer, it often drives me crazy. Anyone else have to deal with this? And if so, do you just roll with it or find a way around it?
