  Detective fiction
A branch of crime fiction, detective fiction is the fictional genre centered around an investigation by a detective, usually in the form of the investigation of a murder.
A common feature is that the investigator is usually unmarried, with some source of income other than a regular job, and frequently has an assistant, who is asked to make all kinds of apparently irrelevant inquiries, and acts as an audience surrogate for the explanation of the mystery at the end of the story.
The Mystery of Marie Roget is particularly interesting, as it is a scarcely fictionalized analysis of the circumstances around the real-life discovery of the body of a young woman named Mary Rogers, in which Poe expounds his theory of what actually happened.

All theories are fictions, if you will, and they are much more tentative and more imprecise than the fictions of story.
Theories are fictions without the full strength of make believe engendered by a fictional work of art, but, nonetheless, they are fictions which may lead to insight and discovery.

 Nextbook: Reading Lists   (Site not responding. Last check: )
For many writers, the relationships between Jewish mothers and fathers and their loving, often exasperating children can be powerful lenses for understanding oneself and one's world: a son's future faith can be contained in his mother's past; the shifting of a parent's political ideals can be revealed through a playground incident with her child.
Their factual and fictional dispatches from the places to which they felt deeply connected often became the defining literary visions of those far-flung places—it's impossible to envision Odessa, for example, without seeing the world Isaac Babel sketched.
In fiction and in philosophy, in the global fight against anti-Semitism, and in the local effort to build decent nations and communities, Jewish books and writers have been part of the struggle to make a better world.

That book features one of the most living of fictional characters that I’ve ever encountered: the dashing Angelo Pardi, a young Italian nobleman of the early 19th century, making his way back home through a Provence then in the grip of a cholera epidemic.
There are even moments when the reader becomes confused as to whether the text describes places which still exist, or whether the passages have been quoted (with delight) from ancient sources.
The pages are generously illustrated with period engravings and photographs, and the margins are crammed with fascinating tidbits and quirky opinions (a note on locating the Villa Palagonia in Sicily states that “the author insists that confusion is part of the Palagonian experience and so refuses to clarify the route”).
