The (Im)possibility of Objectivity : Narrating the Past in Young Adult Historiographic Metafiction, Amy Cross , 2015 single work criticism

In this article Amy Cross draws upon two Australian historiographic metafictive texts, Into White Silence and The Lace Maker's Daughter, to demonstrate how particular narrative strategies destablise the relationship between history and fiction and the past and the present, and can invite readers to consider their own roles as meaning makers - of history and of their individual selves.
