Author Charles Newton on Why He Writes Fiction

“Charlie Newton is an over-sized character,” WFPL's Erin Keane says, “almost like a character in one of his books.” Newton, author of “Start Shooting,” will read and lead a workshop at Second Story Books this week, and Erin spoke with him about why he writes fiction (with a heavy emphasis on authenticity) rather than non-fiction. She joined us on Friday's Byline to talk about their conversation.
