Debut Novel's 'Uniquely Real' Dialogue Births New Sub-Genre? (by MediaPe); New Approach to Fiction Turns Heads in Book Industry.Debut Novel's 'Uniquely Real' Dialogue Births New Sub-Genre? (by MediaPe); New Approach to Fiction Turns Heads in Book Industry.
by BWW News Desk - Jul 26, 2014

Visit www.theperfecteverything.net for contact details, review copies, photos, and an author bio. Debut Novel's "Uniquely Real" Dialogue Births New Sub-Genre? Fiction that moved the most units the last few years has largely been in the YA and crime genres, leading critics to speculate that readers of fiction today tend to read more for sheer entertainment, escape and a general relaxed thinking disposition. 'You will be hard-pressed to find literary fiction in its truest form crack even the New York Times Book Review today,' novelist Jeffrey Allen said. Rather than focusing on what sells however, Mr. Allen has sought to bring something fresh into the modern fiction landscape in his debut novel 'The Perfect Everything': narrative realism. A potential sub-genre where dialogue becomes a more natural lubricant for other artistic components that flow through and around it such as character, tone, prose and plot. This is accomplished by breaking some rules. In order to accomplish what he calls 'uniquely real' narration, Mr. Allen employs a first-person, present-tense stream-of-conscience to give the reader a front row seat within the mind of protagonist Alan Jones and his hyperactive musings on relationships, careers and comedy. 'Even YA and crime books still come at you with unrealistic dialogue and narration that to some extent derives from an author's fear of being portrayed as writer with no command of the craftsomeone bereft of artistic, literary prowess,' said Mr. Allen. 'Authors fear they will be condescending to their readers. They also worry about the backlash they might receive for using too many contractions or run-on sentences or for beginning sentences with prepositions. And yet, that's how we talk. To be honest, I'm surprised we haven't already seen more realistic dialogue, especially in YA.' These fears are certainly not present in 'The Perfect Everything,' a self-published work with an initial exclusive release on Amazon this week that has been garnering buzz across all demographics. 'I think this is something fresh and interesting that will catch on quick,' said 33-year-old Brian Flamming who first learned of the book a year earlier in a focus group for the novel where narration was the core topic. 'Yes, it is a super fun read and I love the characters, but what moved me was the dialogue and narration that allowed me to really relate to the characters.' 'This book was definitely not written for women, but women will love the accessibility and insight into the mind of a 20s-something guy, which comes from the writing,' said 28-year-old reader Carrie Ralston.
