Two outstanding fiction writers discuss the marriage of fact and fiction. The main character of Chris Kraus’ lauded novel, I Love Dick, is called Chris Kraus, while her forthcoming work, The Childlike Life of the Black Tarantula: A 20th Century Fable, is a biography of writer Kathy Acker – also a fiction-and-fact-blender. Heather Rose’s The Museum of Modern Love wraps a fictional plot around Marina Abramovic’s real-world performance piece, The Artist is Present. Chris and Heather discuss blurring the borders between fact and fiction with Alice Grundy.
