Pace, Barbara G.; Adkins, Theresa A.
English Journal, v91 n4 p48-53 Mar 2002
Describes how a teacher found literature for Upward Bound students. Presents Geoffrey Canada's "Fist, Stick, Knife, Gun: A Personal History of Violence in America" as a nonfiction work to provide clarity and connections that might not have been available in a fictional work, yet it had elements of literary fiction that made the text engaging.
