Beschreibung von Audible

Among the most eponymous authors of the thriller genre, Ken Follett started off humbly enough: He began writing, he says, so he could raise money to fix his car. A steward of suspense since his 1978 breakthrough, Eye of the Needle, Follett here offers a clinical dissection of the thriller genre. A successful thriller, notes Follett, produces fear and anxiety - emotions that demand resolution, and thereby maintain audiences’ interest. The best-selling author explores the history of the genre, pointing to Erskine Childers’ little-known 1903 work, The Riddle of the Sands, as the progenitor of the modern suspense story. Follett traces women’s shifting role in suspense fiction, examining how a genre originally geared toward men has evolved to include female heroes and villains, authors and audiences.
