Contemporary discussions on nonfiction are often riddled with questions about the boundaries between truth and memory, honesty and artifice, facts and lies. Just how much truth is in nonfiction? How much is a lie? Blurring the Boundaries sets out to answer such questions while simultaneously exploring the limits of the form. This collection features twenty genre-bending essays from today's most renowned teachers and writers--including original work from Michael Martone, Marcia Aldrich, Dinty W. Moore, Lia Purpura, and Robin Hemley, among others. These essays experiment with structure, style, and subject matter, and each is accompanied by the writer's personal reflection on the work itself, illuminating his or her struggles along the way. As these innovative writers stretch the limits of genre, they take us with them, offering readers a front-row seat to an ever-evolving form. Readers also receive a practical approach to craft thanks to the unique writing exercises provided by the writers themselves. Part groundbreaking nonfiction collection, part writing reference, Blurring the Boundaries serves as the ideal book for literary lovers and practitioners of the craft.

We've earned our wings the hard way here at Integrated, and I am focused on one thing—capturing as much market share in the industries where we fit before the big dogs come in and start buying all the business they can.

Over the last twenty years of the 20th Century, set in Georgia and primarily in southern California, Patrick Kirk writes a fictional account of the lives of Bryan and Carolyn Jenkins as they traverse the “yuppies gotta have it all” lifestyle. The story is in some ways a high tech suspense thriller; part romance, part spy novel. It is about business, mentorship, career changes and their effects on a marriage and having a family in the 90’s. It’s also about corporate corruption and greed and how the PC software revolution assisted in the decline in American business values. It’s a dissection of the Enron-driven rolling electrical blackouts and the company’s ultimate demise. Some of the story lines are imagined after people, places, events and technology encountered by the author during his thirty years in the PC software business.

Captain Tom Duncan is on the way up as an expert targeteer for the United States military. Unlike many of his peers, Duncan has an almost preternatural feel for the world at war. He's able to plan strategic campaigns, identify the enemy's critical weaknesses, and exploit vulnerabilities faster than the competition-which makes him a shoe-in for a promotion. Soon, he could become a major or maybe even colonel. As Duncan's military dreams come true, his eyes are opened to the monstrous ways of his own government at war, and he's sickened by the unnecessary violence. When the enemy escalates with the introduction of chemical munitions against civilians, Duncan's boss wants to make an example-by which he means the use of weapons of mass destruction, otherwise known as nukes. Duncan knows there's no coming back from WMDs. In order to make a point without bloody consequence, Duncan arranges for a clean, efficient attack-an attack that goes horribly wrong. To his utmost regret, it's not the enemy but friendly civilians and American military personnel who suffer. So begins a battle between the state of Texas and the United States government ... but whose side will Duncan choose?

The Internet is often hyped as a means to enhanced consumer power: a hypercustomized media world where individuals exercise unprecedented control over what they see and do. That is the scenario media guru Nicholas Negroponte predicted in the 1990s, with his hypothetical online newspaper The Daily Me—and it is one we experience now in daily ways. But, as media expert Joseph Turow shows, the customized media environment we inhabit today reflects diminished consumer power. Not only ads and discounts but even news and entertainment are being customized by newly powerful media agencies on the basis of data we don’t know they are collecting and individualized profiles we don’t know we have. Little is known about this new industry: how is this data being collected and analyzed? And how are our profiles created and used? How do you know if you have been identified as a “target” or “waste” or placed in one of the industry’s finer-grained marketing niches? Are you, for example, a Socially Liberal Organic Eater, a Diabetic Individual in the Household, or Single City Struggler? And, if so, how does that affect what you see and do online?Drawing on groundbreaking research, including interviews with industry insiders, this important book shows how advertisers have come to wield such power over individuals and media outlets—and what can be done to stop it.
