Hooper provides a nicely annotated bibliography of recent and classical fiction organized into common-sense categories. In this format, which accommodates the needs of both the library professional and the general reader, Hooper takes the time and print to find the attractions of the hundreds of titles while providing abstracts that are short and concise. He covers settings such as old New York, the classical world, lost worlds of privilege and exotic locals, characters including royals, rebels and unlikely rebels, stories set in the domestic sphere as well as in war, languages ranging from the dreamy to the fictional autobiography, and moods including nostalgia, inspiration and humor. Hooper also makes sure to cover all ages and ethnicities of adult readers. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
