The Aesthetics of Middlebrow Fiction : Popular US Novels, Modernism, and Form, 1945-75 Hardback

Description

During the Cold War, many popular American novels were labelled "middlebrow," leading to a general belief that these texts held less intellectual merit.

Perrin debunks these unfair assumptions through works by James Michener, Harper Lee, and Leon Uris, arguing that such writers made a major contribution to the tradition of American literature.
