The ___’s Daughter – The Millions – Emily St. John Mandel
An interesting essay about the trend in book titles. First, we’re given examples of trends (like secret lives) and then the process by which the author of this essay took to find several Daughter titles. Goodreads makes an appearance!
Next, she spoke to booksellers and they provided further insight to the trends – that having similar titles provides comfort and familiarity to readers. Fun Fact: those the essayist interviewed had said that none of the customers in their experience have ever confused one Daughter title from another. Neat, eh?
It may not be publishing news, per se, but it’s definitely worth a read! There are more points she covers as well. Take a look!
