Unreliable Narrators description

Poe’s William Wilson.  Nabokov’s Humbert Humbert.  J. D. Salinger’s Holden Caulfield.  Unreliable narrators are unsettling guides through the stories they tell, fooling themselves, others, their readers or a combination of the three.  J.P. Pomare’s disturbing page-turner Call Me Evie and Annaleese Jochems’ obsession-fueled Baby feature discomfiting and unstable narrators, who distort and refract the truth, filling readers with enjoyably compulsive doubt as their tales progress. 

Chair: Geordie Williamson
