Authorship as several narratives, first with regard to its social function and second its personal meaning in the individual’s life narrative and which are interrelated either personally or professionally, both correlating to point 1. FCMAP 27 4. Going well beyond those in the author’s immediate circle (agents, publishers and so forth), together authorship and readership represent an oddly intimate and yet largely distant set of dialogues, represented in FCMAP by selected fictional narratives of old age which both reflect social conventions and yet as aesthetic expressions may also challenge and radicalize at least aspects of such conventional narratives; these complex relations were drawn together actively and perhaps even reconfigured in a participative way by FCMAP at public events involving U3A volunteers encountering six living authors (five of them with novels included on the nominated reading), giving rise to experiential exchanges and narrative processing that are part of the larger set of relations indicated in point 1.

Intuitively according to John D. Niles in Homo Narrans: The Poetics and Anthropology of Oral Literature (1999): Oral narrative, or what we call storytelling in everyday speech, is as much around us as the air we breathe, although we often take its casual forms so much for granted that we are scarcely aware of them. It is also an ancient practice. (1) He adds that ‘By oral narrative I denote people’s use of the elements of speech to evoke action in a temporal sequence’ (1–2). As we have seen, FCMAP respondents clearly understood texts in this way on a number of levels and related them to real occurrences contextually, not necessarily directly or naively, but as a way of initiating further thoughts about and accounts of the experiential.
