Global and Historical Perspectives
Vekt i gram:
Crossover books transcend the conventionally recognized age barriers within the fiction market. Although crossover literature has recently acquired a prominent status thanks to the extraordinary cross-generational success of J. K. Rowling's "Harry Potter", authors and readers have been crossing the boundaries between adult and children's fiction in both directions ever since those boundaries were drawn. In fact, there is a very long tradition of literature shared by audiences of all ages.In "Crossover Fiction", Sandra L. Beckett explores the global trend of crossover literature and explains how it is transforming literary canons, concepts of readership, the status of authors, the publishing industry, and bookselling practices. This pioneering study will have significant relevance across disciplines, as scholars in literary studies, media and cultural studies, visual arts, education, psychology, and sociology examine the increasingly blurred borderlines between adults and young people in contemporary society, notably with regard to their consumption of popular culture.Well-written and exhaustively researched, Beckett's newest book will no doubt be the definitive volume on the crossover genre for years to come.
