David Sedaris: Fact or Fiction?

I've been intending to write about The New Republic's dissection of the factuality of David Sedaris' non-fiction essays, but Daniel Radosh beat me to it (after Jack Shafer beat him to it). In general, I'm fascinated by this sliding scale of acceptable and unacceptable deceit we've seemingly agreed upon as a culture.

I've finished a book proposal about exploring this nuance, but it's sitting on a stack of book proposals that will never happen. Perhaps I should outsource some of these.
