Granger Mines Pure Gold and Sets It Out for all to see!!!

Ten genres all mined and explored with "solid light" (golden) insights! This text about texts is a pure gift from one who loves literature about Harry Potter and much, much more. Bram Stoker to JK Rowling? YEP! Shakespeare to JK Rowling? YEP! And there's more gold...
Ten genres all mined and explored with "solid light" (golden) insights! This text about texts is a pure gift from one who loves literature about Harry Potter and much, much more. Bram Stoker to JK Rowling? YEP! Shakespeare to JK Rowling? YEP! And there's more gold in them 'ere pages, too.

AS Byatt referred to Harry Potter and the Childish Adult in a review of the same title some time ago. She missed the boat. Granger does NOT miss the boat. In fact, if you had to take one tour guide to the boat of English Literature, this is the one to take. It will open up possibilities and connections that will enhance your re-reading of Harry, Romeo and Juliet, Dante, and Dorothy L. Sayers, to mention just a few authors.

Granger has solidified the light and set it on candlestick so all may see. Get your copy and start seeing in many ways and manners that now become consciously appreciated. You appreciated Rowling and Harry before this; you will appreciate them more after reading this study.
