Abstract

IT seems to be the belief of many of our novelists that only through fiction can the truth be told. A practice so rare and commendable as truth‐telling should certainly be encouraged, but unfortunately in its literary aspect the method adopted is not ideal. Fiction and fact are becoming indistinguishable; the one is increasingly masquerading as the other.
