Summary
"Nearly 700 works by more than 500 authors are presented in Jazz Fiction: A History and Comprehensive Reader's Guide, an annotated bibliography of stories and novels containing a jazz component. It compartmentalizes titles into literature genres, such as children, teen, and young adult stories, mystery and detective fiction; fantasy and science fiction; woman and jazz; works based on the lives of actual jazz artists; international jazz fiction representing more than twenty countries; and even jazz fiction sans music - books that imply musical content but actually have none. Jazz Fiction identifies a series of subgenres (such as big band and swing, blues, pulp and smut, and novelization) and includes characteristic examples and easy reference for each; it also provides two "short-lists," which recommend a selection of short stories and novels about jazz. Broad in scope, meticulously researched, and including titles that have long been inaccessible, this resource is an overview of the history of the genre from its beginning to the present."--BOOK JACKET
