Written by self-described theatre junkies for those who love to read novels about the theatre, A Novel Approach to Theatre contains over 600 entries describing novels that have theatrical settings or in which characters work in the theatre. Excluded from the work are novels which inspired plays, and those titles set exclusively in the world of ballet, opera or film.
A finding tool that is itself highly readable and fun, its entries are arranged under one of the following categories: bio-novels, classics, fantasy, historical novels, mystery, romance, westerns, and young adult. Extensive cross-references assist the reader in finding the primary entry for the novel. For ease in locating copies of the books, the authors have included ISBNs for all titles published after 1969 and format references for those interested in books on tape, film or video. Indexes identify novels by author, title and subject.
