About the Book

This book surveys the stellar writing by the Welsh master, Ken Follett. The 76 A to Z topics analyze 35 published works and highlight the intangibles—parenting, achievers, literacy—alongside historical themes of plague, healing, religion, and spies. Stylistic touches appear in entries on secondary characters, villains, sense impressions, names, humor and language. Details authenticate the role of fictional households in global and racial movements. Key to the author’s appeal, the progress of women toward full citizenship fuels admirable domestic and career progress by his heroines.
