DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF WHAT MAKES A BESTSELLER IN THIS ENTERTAINING, REVELATORY GUIDE TO THE COMMON FEATURES OF STORIES MILLIONS LOVE What do Michael Corleone, Jack Ryan, and Scout Finch have in common? Creative writing professor and thriller writer James W. Hall knows, and now, in this fun, witty, and thought-provoking book, he reveals how bestsellers work. Using twelve of the biggest bestselling novels of the twentieth century as case studies--including "The Godfather, Gone with the Wind, To Kill a Mockingbird, "and "Jaws"--Hall offers a fascinating discussion of some of the common features of popular literature. From tempting glimpses inside secret societies, such as submariners in "The Hunt for Red October, "Opus Dei in "The Da Vinci Code, " and the brotherhood of shark hunters in "Jaws "to pivotal personal secrets like those in "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Bridges of Madison County, " Hall gives us a tantalizing glimpse into the DNA of a bestseller. Featuring fascinating and little-known facts about bestsellers of the last century, "Hit Lit "is a must-read for fiction lovers and aspiring writers alike, and makes us think anew about why we love the books we love.
