Sometimes even the librarians get stumped. I happened to be entering a novel, when the genre popped up as “musical fiction”. So I asked the staff: “What is musical fiction??? I was met with a lot of blank looks. Not to be deterred I went searching…
Turns out Wikipedia describes musical fiction as:
“a genre of fiction in which music is paramount: both as subject matter, and through the rhythm and flow of the prose; that is, music is manifested through the language itself.”
Notable authors who have written musical fiction include Janet Evanovich, John Irving, Jack Kerouac, Robert Tannenbaum, and local author Andre Dubus III. Follow the links below for listing of works considered to be music to you ears (& eyes!).
