That's not a very nuanced attitude to language - "truth" and "fiction" aren't binary well-defined things. There are lots of types of writing which aren't "true" but aren't "fiction" either. What about a discredited scientific theory? Or a history book written before a particular discovery was made that changed the interpretation?
