The great thing about Carve is it attempts to be “honest fiction” in the sense that it publishes authors young and old, unpublished and established, by a submission and review process that is run primarily by other writers. They look for fiction that is both concise and generous, and strive the style of their namesake, Raymond Carver, who I knew nothing about at the time. I was just happy I found a story that I genuinely enjoyed reading. Ironically, I read several of his stories later and found out that he wasn’t my cup of tea. Luckily, Carve and, more importantly, The Eternal Youth of Everyone Else were.
However, Truman Capote pioneered the 'nonfiction novel', as he called it, when he undertook the writing of In Cold Blood. His book described the well-known murders of the Clutters, a model American family. Due to the fact that Capote was writing a factual account of the crime, he thought it necessary to make his novel correct in even the smallest details. This proved to be a very difficult project, but his perseverance paid off. Capote made use of many literary techniques in order to grab the interest of his readers.
As a well-known socialist, Sinclair’s purpose in The Jungle is to demonize capitalism. While the concept of socialism is not introduced until the end of the novel, the evils of capitalism is present from the onset. The Jungle is famous for its effect on society and its views of factory labor, even if this was not the author’s intent (Trott, 2006). The novel did, however, precede an era which heavily discussed and dissected capitalism and socialism.

Rather than a uniquely open class, he states that England’s landed elite was indeed closed to self-made men who obtained their fortune as businessmen, lawyers, merchants, speculators or industrialists with only a few exceptions. He believed the newcomers were so few in number that they did not pose a threat to the established landed elite. The debate between the two men starts out with Spring critique of Stone’s book on a number of grounds such as his choice of counties he focused his research or attempting to establish a continuity of country seats. His tone in the first response to Stone’s book was critical of his interpretation of data but respectful of the methods and extensive research. Stone’s response is sharp and very defensive, calling Spring’s knowledge and expertise into question as well as his failure to comprehend his text.

Probably the most important information in the autobiography is that almost all of the characters were inspired by people who Twain met in his life. This is the biggest evidence that this book isn’t just a simple work, but also an illustration of literature and culture that time. Despite the fact that the plot of the novel takes place before the Civil War, when this story was born, the war has just ended with the victory of the North’s economic policy. The writers and poets wanted to continue the English literary traditions and there were only a few contemporary authors, who presented the “real” America.
