Summary
"In this book, Ken Gelder offers a lively, progressive and comprehensive account of popular fiction as a distinctive literary field. Drawing on a wide range of popular novelists, from Sir Walter Scott and Marie Corelli to Ian Fleming, J.K. Rowling and Stephen King, the book describes for the first time how this field works and what its unique features are." "This book is essential reading for those interested in the way popular fiction works as a literary, cultural and industrial practice."--Jacket
