Contrast: fiction


Non-fiction is a truthful account or representation of a subject which is composed of facts. It is one of the two main divisions in writing, particularly used in libraries, the other being fiction.

Essays, journals, documentaries, scientific papers, photographs, biographies, textbooks, diagrams and journalism are all common examples of non-fiction works and fiction within any of these works is usually regarded as dishonest. Other works can legitimately be either fiction or non-fiction, such as letters, magazine articles, histories, websites, speeches and travelogues. Although they are mostly either one or the other it is not uncommon for there to be a blend of both, particularly non-fiction with a dash of fiction for added spice. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-fiction [Oct 2004]
