Relaxing novels

The novel also has its place in the Graphic Arts Show with 500 titles of “bridging” literature which unites teenagers and adults in the same reading pleasure. Novels are divided into two categories:

  • Reality novels deal with the daily realities of young adults and develop such varied themes as sexuality, drugs, love and violence. Among them are also popular fiction stories such as adventure novels, thrillers and chick lit, literature written especially for young women. 
  • Imaginary novels cover fiction sub-types from fantasy to science fiction: heroic fantasy, utopia, uchronia, cyberpunk, anticipation and bit-lit. No type of fiction novel has been forgotten so that everyone has the opportunity to escape.


Do you have questions on sexuality, discrimination, addictions or the family? The Graphic Arts Show offers works to help in the process of personal identity and affirmation. Whether your questions are personal or about society, our selection will help visitors to find the answers.
