Description
Contending that the fundamental act of narration itself -- including the narration of history -- expresses a system of values, Price explores the work of seven contemporary novelists who share a commitment to reexamining the idea of history as "what really happened". Within a theoretical framework based on Friedrich Nietzsche and Giambattista Vico, he investigates how these writers -- Carlos Fuentes, Susan Daitch, Salman Rushdie, Michel Tournier, Ishmael Reed, Graham Swift, and Mario Vargas Llosa -- create a discursive space between history and literature, a space within which history can be questioned and the making of history explored.
