From the 1st of July the City Library will be changing the arrangement of the Fiction Collections.
The Romance Collection is being expanded to include Chick Lit and Family Sagas.
What was Free Fiction will be changed to Classic Fiction and Contemporary Fiction.
Classic Fiction will include the traditional classics such as Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf; also Cult Fiction such as Anthony Burgess and Jack Kerouac; and Booker and Pulitzer prize winners which are still popular eg The god of small things by Arundhati Roy.
Long standing New Zealand authors are also in this category eg. Janet Frame, Katherine Mansfield and Maurice Shadbolt.
All other Free Fiction published in the last 10 years will be in Contemporary Fiction.
When Fiction is about 10 years old it is either changed to Upper Basement fiction stack or, if still popular, to Classic Fiction.
Mysteries and Thrillers, Science Fiction and Fantasy, and Short Story Collections remain the same.
