Very interesting to me, since I live in the area discussed in this book. It divides the story into separate people who have an impact on the writing, publishing, and distribution of the novel. I found it eye-opening.

Michener's books are always excellent, and this more recent one is no exception. A master story-teller at work.

Book Description
"A good, old-fashioned, sink-your-teeth-into-it story...Suspenseful."
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
James Michener turns the creation and publication of a novel into an extroardinary and exciting experience as he renders believable the intriguing personalities who are the parents to its birth: a writer, editor, critic, and reader are locked in the desperate scenario of life, death, love, and truth. As immediate as today's headlines, as close as the bookshelves, THE NOVEL is a fascinating look into the glamorous world of the writer.
