It’s often said that all fiction is autobiographical, yet writers, readers, and critics have spent countless hours parsing the differences between fiction and memoir. In this class, we’ll use Alexander Chee’s essay “How to Write an Autobiographical Novel” to explore the allure, power, and potential pitfalls of autofiction. What might we gain from fictionalizing our lives? And what might be the costs of such work? Together, we’ll answer these questions, and with those answers at heart, we’ll write autofiction of our own.
