Biographical fiction has developed into a popular genre over the past two decades, with award-winning writers such as Joyce Carol Oates, Colm Tóibín, and Hilary Mantel contributing to its increasing visibility. This roundtable brings together researchers and writers of biofiction to shed light on the relationship between an author’s power to shape a
historical individual’s afterlife and notions of responsibility, creativity, and truthfulness.
