December 17th 2022 - Autofiction? I barely know them.

I'm currently reading 'My Name is Lucy Barton', by Elizabeth Strout and a review quote from the Washington Post in the top left corner on the inside cover caught my eye when it said, "...coming close at times to the rawness of autofiction...".

I've never heard of autofiction before, but I'm intrigued. Especially after what I wrote in my previous post with wanting to experiment with writing elements of myself into my work more. I'm also glad to see that I have some examples already on my bookshelf. Outline by Rachel Cusk, How Should A Person Be? by Sheila Heti.

It's always nice when you find the name of a thing in your head.
