Tracy Chevalier has carved out a unique and narrow fictional genre for herself. She may never duplicate the enormous critical (and monetary) success of Girl with a Pearl Earring but she continues to write popular books about other artists. Her latest, Burning Bright, features William Blake, the English poet and visionary, famous for:
"Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"
Some readers may be disappointed, however, at the minor role he plays in the novel. For others the magic of eighteenth century London and the charming story about Blake's fictional neighbors has been enough to put it on the List at #12.
The only other entry is For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison. This fantasy novelist also writes in a specific sub-genre labeled "sexy supernaturalism".
