"Ken Follett: The Transformation of a Writer focuses on the artistic development and cultural implications of an important contemporary novelist - the author of such best-selling works as Eye of the Needle (1978), The Pillars of the Earth (1989), and The Hammer of Eden (1998)."--BOOK JACKET. "This study, which should appeal to both the scholar and the general reader, concludes with an assessment of Ken Follett's work so far and demonstrates that while he is part of a continuum, he has uniquely transformed his chosen genre - the thriller - and has made a significant contribution to popular cultural forms."--BOOK JACKET.
