A Fan's Notes
A Fan's Notes is a 1968 novel by Frederick Exley. Subtitled "A Fictional Memoir" and categorized as fiction, the book is semi-autobiographical. In a brief "Note to the Reader" in the opening pages, Exley writes: "Though the events in this book bear similarity to those of that long malaise, my life...I have drawn freely from the imagination and adhered only loosely to the pattern of my past life. To this extent, and for this reason, I ask to be judged a writer of fantasy."
Since its publication the book has been reprinted several times and achieved a cult following.A Fan's Notes was briefly featured in the documentary film Stone Reader as an example of a brilliant debut novel.
