"World Without Ends..." is a very well-researched and well-written volume on the history of daytime television soap operas from their birth as 15 minute radio serials to the 60 minute format that most soaps were aired in by the late '90's. Every single serial that aired up until 1996 is covered from the little-known ones like "Somerset" to "Dark Shadows" to "General Hospital".
The authors, really scholars of the genre, write about what makes the afternoon suds so popular and why they will forever be a mainstay of afternoon viewing.
Simply a must-have and a treasure trove of info on the most beloved form of story telling TV has ever known.
The book also comes with exclusive pics of behind-the-scenes shots of all the wonderful great dramas that have graced our screens for decades.
