At 10.31 in the morning in Khao Lak & The Impossible : Fact and fiction in two disaster books. (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay is about "factionstexter", a combination between fact and fiction, and the problems that can occur when reading them. I present previous resarch on this subject and I focused on docu drama and dramadoc. Bo G Jansson is the researcher I used most frequently in this essay. He describes various types of faction texts in film, television and literature. Annette Årheim´s thesis stands for the didactic portion of the essay. She has done interviews with students about texts with a reality background and presents how they read these and it shows that it is problematic.

The essay also includes an analysis where I discuss two different faction texts, the book At 10.31 in the morning in Khao Lak and the movie The Impossible. These are both stories written after the tsunami disaster in the Indian Ocean on Boxing Day 2004. I try to categorize the different texts and I anayze the narrative technique, focalization and also the text´s paratextuality. I also compare them thematically.

Finally I do a didactic discussion where I give suggestions on how to work with faction texts in the classroom.
