“Literary fiction titles are critically acclaimed, often award-winning. Language and literary style matter to authors of literary fiction. They pay attention to words and how they are woven together. Elegant, lyrical language may be used, and writers carefully choose every word. These are character-centered novels, and even secondary characters are vividly portrayed. Literary fiction is also provocative, often addressing more serious issues and raising important questions, which makes these novels excellent choices for book discussions. These complex, multilayered works wrestle with universal dilemmas, and their stories usually unfold at a leisurely pace. They are books that appeal to the mind as much if not more than the emotions.”
