Of course, readers particularly male readers are not always willing to grant writers particularly female writers the authority to paint on such broad canvases, which is one reason Marian Evans chose to publish her novels as George Eliot.
Middlemarch —which tracks idealistic young Dorothea Brooke and ambitious physician Tertius Lydgate as they make ill-considered marriages in a scandal-prone English manufacturing town—takes on the sweeping scope, complex politics, and historical specificity that define its French Realist predecessors, while adding a psychological acuity that anticipates Henry James. The concerns in Karenina , however, are less social than existential, demonstrating that ultimate questions can be encountered in drawing rooms as freely as on whaling ships.
Length also gives the novelist the opportunity to work in modules: to create seemingly independent books-within-books. The strange and powerful result is a work that seems to include a record of the labors that produced it, dragging the relics of its own creation into the light.
It amplifies the dreamlike atmosphere and offbeat interior logic of the briefer early works that made his global reputation, but also pushes into more challenging moral territory, tempering cool disdain for politics with a newfound concern with repressed historical burdens of trauma and guilt. Suggestive of a conspiracy thriller directed by David Lynch, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle somehow manages to be emotionally satisfying without ever quite making sense. Something else that really long books do is force us to contend with them as objects: to be attentive to the physical experience of reading them.
I have a vivid tactile memory of my first encounter with House of Leaves , which I discovered on a table in the bookstore where I worked, looming like the telephone directory for Hell. Animated to a greater extent than any other novel in recent memory with the sheer pleasure of invention, The Luminaries is at least superficially a murder mystery set in a New Zealand gold-rush town in , written in a style that recalls Victorian-era masterpieces by Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins.

Then, one fateful night, she sees something she was never meant to see, the Center's most sensitive asset ever: an amphibious man, captured in the Amazon, to be studied for Cold War advancements. The creature is terrifying but also magnificent, capable of language and of understanding emotions. Using sign language, the two learn to communicate. Soon, affection turns into love, and the creature becomes Elisa's sole reason to live.

But outside forces are pressing in. Richard Strickland, the obsessed soldier who tracked the asset through the Amazon, wants nothing more than to dissect it before the Russians get a chance to steal it. Elisa has no choice but to risk everything to save her beloved. With the help of Zelda and Giles, Elisa hatches a plan to break out the creature.
Haag’s Many Alexandrias
But Strickland is on to them. And the Russians are, indeed, coming. Developed from the ground up as a bold two-tiered release-one story interpreted by two artists in the independent mediums of literature and film- The Shape of Water is unlike anything you've ever read or seen. But the novel that's accompanying Guillermo del Toro's new movie The Shape of Water is no mere adaptation. Co-author Daniel Kraus' book and the film tell the same story, of a mute woman who falls in love with an imprisoned and equally mute creature, in two very different ways.
