The Truth Will Not Set You Free If You Never Have a Chance to Speak, or a Contradiction in Terms.
Brooks, Kathleen
ALAN Review, v23 n2 p32-34 Win 1996
Examines problems of interpretation posed by Avi's "Nothing but the Truth," particularly those concerning what truth is and what access the reader has to it. Shows how a "documentary novel" employs "objective facts" but allows various characters to manipulate them. Suggests that a traditional approach to the novel is problematic and recommends reader response. (TB)
