Comfort Becoming Complacency? Authors Need to Strive for Fresh Horizons
John Grisham's latest legal thriller, 'The Litigator,' has been criticized as rehashing his earlier novels. However, Grisham is hardly alone as a veteran novelist who has provoked critics' ire for becoming rather complacent and prone to repetition.
Andrea Semakis of The Plain Dealer thought John Grisham's latest legal novel, The Litigator, was rather formulaic. I concur. And I think it's a recurring problem throughout popular literature, afflicting many famous authors.
Last night I finished the pleasant novel while waiting for a snowstorm to hit my hometown. I could not help but make mental comparisons to previous Grisham novels The King of Torts and The Street Lawyer. Indeed, this latest novel could be a mashup of the two: A young, upper-class lawyer leaves a big firm to work for a small firm and work for real, flesh-and-blood clients (The Street Lawyer) and gets caught up in the game of class-action lawsuits against corporations with deep pockets (The King of Torts).
Characters were similar, as were the lessons imparted to the reader: Corporate law is soul-sucking, lawyers should help people in need of justice, and beware the lure of get-rich-quick law. The Litigator is not a sequel or a reboot, but rather feels like one.
Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler are other well-known authors who have sometimes harmed their literary quality by growing repetitive or becoming prolific sequel-ists. Like Grisham, their novels often have formulaic titles, such as Cussler's one- and two-word selections.
Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler are both thriller and espionage authors who have "sold out" by allowing their names to become branded to novels written by other authors. Clancy has had his named branded to multiple series of novels and video games, netting massive payments from publishers. Joystiq.com theorized that Clancy's leasing of his iconic name to video game publisher Ubisoft could earn him as much as $94 million. Cussler, similarly, has his name attached to multiple series of partner-written novels and books, according to his official website.
Authors who engage in sequels risk writing prose that comes to feel like microwaved leftovers as well: Stephen King's later Dark Tower novels grew to feel increasingly complex and jumbled, according to Michael Agger of The New Yorker. He and I agree that the series took a ludicrous turn when King himself became a character in the sixth novel, injecting himself directly into the already-strange storyline. It seemed as though he had long-ago exceeded his original plotline and framework and was now playing an amateurish "what if" game at his word processor.
Dean Koontz, with his rather zany characters, often seems similar, evolving from relatively normal, human characters in his earlier novels to protagonists with seemingly supernatural abilities, such as Odd Thomas, in his later works.
Is there a point at which many authors should rein themselves in; take a step back from the money; or, sadly, consider retirement?
