Rediscovering Nancy Drew
This is a very interesting book. It is about Nancy Drew, yes, but it also covers behind-the-scenes manipulations in the publishing of her books, The book consists of a series of essays by different people and are divided into the following sections:
Creating and Publishing Nancy Drew
Collecting and Studying Nancy Drew
Transforming Nancy Drew.
There's so much information in this book that I consider it a must-read for anyone interested in Nancy Drew books.
