Abstract

Based on the author's experience, with reference to the work of John McPhee, Truman Capote, Joan Didion, and others, this essay examines the hidden role of autobiography in narrative nonfiction, and the ethical concerns we raise when we tell our own stories in the guise of telling the stories of others.
