High concept literary fiction

D. Morris "@MirabilisDave"
The list author says: "Literary fiction is changing. Only a few years ago, it was usually characterized as beautifully written but aimless, in contrast to genre fiction which is propelled by strong plot but often suffers from unreadably ugly prose. "Has the writer a pen in her hand or a pickaxe?" as Virginia Woolf put it.

But there's a new trend in literary fiction. Without sacrificing the quality of the writing, authors are borrowing from genre fiction the intriguing hook and the page-turning pacing. These are a few of the novels that show this development at its best."
