Pioneering, and controversial: the 5 novel series Little J and Roger, and its successor Julian's Private Scrapbook are unlike anything attempted before in fiction. The Gazetteer is part history, part analysis, part supplementary to the books. The author shows the inside story of this daring series. The whys and hows are fully explained--no questions are left unanswered.
The series defies placement in any standard category. This reader's guide shows why.
Graphic elements are limited in the Smashwords version because they require a lot of space; as much as possible has been included; the fifty plus page section on design and marketing will not fit, unfortunately.
But the extensive essays and "blogs" from the author’s website are all here, as well as new topics written just for this book. Once you browse through this guide, you will have a good idea about the series and whether or not any of these books are for you.
Coming of age, comedy, nostalgia, romance, adventure, gay teens, summer camp, 1960s--these are all there and more. The book is classified as adult because it is written for adults. Candor and open discussions about personal matters are not possible unless that is made clear up front.
The 16 MB PDF unabridged version is available, also free, at diphra.com, the publisher’s website.
