Product Description

Review

This is a book on which other explorations into this vast and largely uncharted territory will build on. Moving from a theoretically sophisticated overview, Gelder engages - closely, uncondescendingly, and entertainingly - with a stimulating range of samples. Most importantly it's enjoyable.
.
–John Sutherland, University College London

With a deceptive ease arising from his familiarity with astonishing range of popular fictions, Gelder breaks new ground in treating popular fiction as a distinctive cultural field with its own logic. The result is a rare combination of clarity and accessibility and challenging insight.
.
–Tony Bennett, The Open University
