Now he presents this lively and entertaining guide to understanding and dissecting novels to make everyday reading more enriching, satisfying, and fun. Examines the grammar of the popular novel. Exploring how authors' choices about structure -- point of view, narrative voice, first page, chapter construction, character emblems, and narrative (dis)continuity -- create meaning and a special literary language, shares the keys to this language with readers who want to get more insight, more understanding, and more pleasure from their reading. --Publisher's description.
