Is there such a thing as Literary Nonfiction you ask? I must admit I've never thought of separating my nonfiction into categories in the same way I do with fiction, although that doesn't mean that those delineations don't exist. Nonfiction categories tend to be more along the lines of topic (history, biography, self-help) than quality or prestige (like literary fiction or classics) likely for the simple reason that nonfiction is less read for pleasure than fiction is.
