Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest, subscribed to the blog, followed me on Twitter and joined the Facebook group! We’re up to 24 members, which is awesome!
Now to announce the winner!!!
The winner is…..
Congratulations, Margaret, I’ll get the book out to you ASAP.
Now, I was hoping to post an article about Slaughterhouse-Five, but two migraines this weekend derailed that idea. Instead, you can head over to the Facebook group and discuss the book following this prompt:
The use of metafiction in anti-war fiction is fairly common (Slaughterhouse-Five, The Things They Carried). Does the inclusion of the author as a character in Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five (and the knowledge that the “author” fought in World War II) lend credibility to the anti-war message, or does it weaken the message by taking away from the story and characters by using an overbearing delivery?
Feel free to discuss in the comments as well, of course!
Note: I’m extending the contest past its original deadline. You now have until Sept. 24 to enter.
The Narrative in the Blog is proud to present The Metafiction Club, a Facebook discussion group! Join to meet other metafiction lovers, discuss your favorite books, and if you’re a writer, what you’re working on!
