" invaluable for gathering out-of-the-way or ephemeral comment from TV and radio interviews the web [and] literary reviews."--Sanford Lakoff "A brilliant idea short, perceptive books which tell you what you need to know about some of the most vibrant and challenging writing around today a bit like having a reading group in your pocket." Ian Rankin "Study Aids Get Chic - Concerned about keeping up at the book club? Stuck for something to say when dinner party talk turns to Zadie Smith?

Launching in September, with further waves in January and May 2002, they re much slicker than the frumpy cheat-aids of yore, including everything from website links to review buzz, and deliberately featuring new novels such as Bridget Jones s Diary, The Shipping News, Trainspotting, and even the Harry Potter books."

And at best it goes a fair way towards reshuffling those categories and redrawing the boundaries. With the first volume, I was relieved. After two or three, I was hooked. The books are invaluable for gathering out-of-the-way or ephemeral comment from TV and radio interviews and the web as well as from literary reviews. Refreshingly upfront and up-to-date Given the space, there are remarkably balanced film/novel comparisons of the most well-known examples An important feature is the fully referenced bibliographies, including reviews and copious website addresses - the latter ranging from fanzines and authors' and publishers' own sites to academic discussion lists and online journals. In method as in subject matter, these guides move freely on the interface between print culture and multimedia. Highly finished and pleasantly handleable as books in their own right, they gesture accommodatingly to both words and worlds beyond. Taking the series as a whole, it also confirms two things: that narrative nowadays is generically highly hybrid and increasingly cross-media; and that an understanding of the processes of writing and reading 'contemporary classic' (or at least 'currently famous') fiction cannot be separated - yet must be distinguished - from the processes of making and marketing books and films."
