Walking the line between truth and fiction

Ansay A. Manette Ansay, unlike a lot of other novelists, seems perfectly comfortable blurring the line between autobiography and fiction. The UM prof doesn't waste time worrying about what's true and what springs from her imagination, a trait that works well in her latest book Good Things I Wish You, a lovely little slice of metafiction about a modern-day UM prof (see?) delving into the life of pianist Clara Schumann and her relationships with her husband Robert and composer Johannes Brahms.
