Description: From Library Journal
Librarians attempting to answer that gut-sinking request for a book "just like this one" can't afford to miss this excellent self-study reader's advisory guide. The author of Readers' Advisory Service in the Public Library (Professional Media, LJ 10/15/97), Saricks helps librarians painlessly discover the specific appeal of 15 different popular fiction genres, what the benchmark titles are for each, and how to talk to people about the books they love. Genres overlooked by other reader's advisory tools are listed here in good detail, such as literary fiction, women's lives and relationships, and three types of suspense separate from mysteries, horror, and thrillers. In each chapter, Saricks breaks a genre down into subgenres (for example, under mystery, English cozy amateur detective tales vs. police procedurals) and identifies authors and titles that typify each. Annotated suggestions for print and nonprint resources are appended for further investigation, as well as another appendix challenging readers to explore five books in each genre every year (with a list of good titles to try). Well indexed by author, title, and subject, and full of practical suggestions on how to prepare for working with readers, this is an invaluable resource. Highly recommended for all public libraries.
