What Are Literary Fiction Books About?

Unlike genre fiction (AKA popular fiction) which follows a specific writing formula and genre guidelines, literary fiction books use creative storytelling to emphasize the character’s struggles and journey. A great literary fiction book has an intriguing plot that comes second to the characters changing circumstances, feelings, perspectives, growth, or decline. Although there are no real literary fiction book genres, literary fiction books feature storylines filled with social commentary, political criticism, or struggles of a past era, social or psychological conversations, and more.

Rather than a “happily ever after” or satisfying ending, literary fiction books are more likely to be ambiguous, with a shocking, sad, harrowing, or unresolved ending. Literary fiction books may push the limits or boundaries more than other genres will. Award-winning literary fiction books you may be familiar with include 1984, The Great Gatsby, The Hand Maid’s Tale, Jane Eyre, and The Catcher in the Rye.
