The Readers' Advisory Guide to Genre Fiction (Google eBook)
From psychological suspense and historical fiction to "gentle reads" and romance, this new guide from expert readers' advisor Joyce Saricks explores the many worlds of fiction. Covering fifteen popular genres (including often-neglected literary rifles), each chapter includes a definition of the genre, its characteristics and appeal elements (such as character development, story line, and frame), and its key authors and subgenres. To help you prepare for the eternal "can you recommend a good book on..." question, there are also reader interview tips, reference sources, and guidelines on how to prepare for the questions you will undoubtedly get.
