AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This work examines how readers understand popular fiction as opposed to literary fiction. "Using Gleitzman's two most challenging works, Water Wings and Two Weeks with the Queen, as benchmarks, I investigate this issue, looking particularly at how he balances humor and pathos in his treatment of sensitive material." (Kroll, Jeri, 1999, p. 157)
