You may have noticed that the Awesome Indies doesn’t have a page for literary fiction. This is because most books labelled literary fiction can be shelved under contemporary or historical fiction. It’s also because the term literary is a descriptive term that could apply to all genres. The Oxford dictionary defines it as writings whose value lies in beauty of form or emotional effect.
