I have my right to be a postmodernist; I came to this country in 1980, when the major postmodern theories were already developed. Then I didn't know it and I try to be American. USA went Reagan to Clinton before I gave up and relized that I live in PostAmeriKa!
Better later than never, they say.
But surprise, surprise! Most Americans do not know where they live. I understand it, the names and locations are the same; the times are diffirent.
My American travels took twenty year and finally I came home. What is my home my SELF. That is the story of the next book, chronologically speaking...
"Nonfiction is technically any prose that isn't fiction, but I think that in creative writing it often suggests a personal level to the writing, such that most journalism, literature reviews, or textbook material usually do not qualify in this context, even though the language may, of course, be very creative. Creative writing nonfiction can be political, educational, philosophical, what have you, but I think that at the core is a kind of consciousness in the piece which is for the most part inappropriate in more scholarly or practical writing. The author of nonfiction in this sense has a personal stake in the material at hand, and does not try to hide it from the reader, but rather uses it to bring the work to a level that is more comfortable and accessible, as if author and reader were speaking together in an informal setting."
