Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to discuss the question of fact, fiction, and faction using as an example Elisabeth Åsbrink’s Och i Wienerwald står träden kvar  (2013), the story of a Jewish boy who was rescued from Nazi Vienna to Sweden by Svenska Israelmissionen in 1939. When published, it was praised in reviews but also questioned for blurring the border between fact and fiction. In the article three different kinds of fiction theories are brought into play and their capability of coming to terms with Åsbrink’s rhetorical strategies, and with literary journalism of this kind, is examined and discussed. The conclusion is that theories focusing on purely extra-textual or intra-textual features get into trouble as opposed to a more pragmatic view treating fictionality as an act of rhetorical communication. It also seems clear that faction is a concept of disputable value.
