A hypertext novel by Sara Sloan Bailey

fac·tog·ra·phy |ˈfaktägrəfē|

Factography is a Soviet concept that came about in the 1920s and justified the communist foundation for storytelling.  Because there was no room for fiction, no art for art’s sake, the communist regime created a series of stories, a collective mythology, out of pieces from the past using real people, real places, and real events, only shifting and spinning the facts behind each to reach a greater truth, a common understanding of reality. So while parts of this work are based in truth, many of the stories are nothing more than fabricated versions of bits of conversation, observation, and my understanding of the life I have lived and collected.
