Assignment 3: Biographical Sketch of the Author

1 Paste your biographical sketch here (maximum 500 words)

In 1989, Danielle Steel wrote her twenty-fourth novel, Star, and it quickly jumped to the top of the New York Bestsellers List. Star is about a young girl named Crystal who is adored by her father and unaware of the rare beauty that she is. At fourteen, she meets the love of her life, Spencer, yet their age difference of thirteen years keeps them apart. After the death of her father, Crystal leaves the ranch where she was raised to pursue a singing career. She becomes a star and after much heartache and pain, reunites with the Spencer, her true love. Star, like Steel's other novels, does have some autobiographical dimensions to it, yet there are very few. Primarily, that the heroine of the novel, Crystal, meets her true love when she is fourteen. Steel herself met her first love, "a brown-haired, brown-eyed French aristocrat" (Bane and Benet 15) named Claude-Eric Lazard, when she was fourteen and he was twenty-two, eight years older than she was. Yet that is where the similarities ends. Steel and Lazard courted off and on for four years until getting married on September 25, 1965 in New York City. After their honeymoon, Steel and Lazard returned to New York and finally settled down in a large and expensive apartment on Park Avenue. There, Danielle began to settle into her life as the wife of a rich banker, dropping out of college four months before graduation The age difference as well as her husband's personality, however, led to very hard times for young Danielle. Lazard was described by Steel as being "strange, solitary, and lonely" (Bane and Benet 18) and eventually he began to verbally abuse her, as well as control her life-from her finances to her friendships to her jobs. With the birth of her daughter, Beatrix, and an exciting new job, Danielle began to become more independent. Orders from her husband began to be disobeyed more frequently, which got her sent to her room a lot but also resulted in her finding a voice for herself. Eventually, Danielle and Lazard separated in 1970. During the time of their separation, Danielle sold her first novel, Going Home, which was written in 1971. Steel had also met someone else, yet their relationship ended when he left her to marry someone else. Going Home was very autobiographical in that it was the story of a single mother who moved from New York to San Francisco in order to start a new life. The success of her book was a personal one, if not a financial one, because it marked the official end to her marriage to Claude-Eric Lazard and the beginning of her career as a #1 Best-selling author.

Assignment 4: Reception History

1 Paste contemporary reception history in here (maximum 500 words)

Danielle Steel is best known for writing a sensational story that her fans will love- filled with love, glamour, lust, and greed. To her critics, she did all that and then some in her novel Star. Star, in its release, caught the eye of most of the top book reviews in the country, including The New York Times Book Review, Publishers Weekly, and The Los Angeles Times Book Review. Star was Steel's twenty-fourth novel and it quickly rose to the top of the Best-Sellers List. Yet because of the notoriety of the author, critics jumped at the chance to find out if Star reached the standards that Steel had already set with her previous novels. For the most part, the reviews were good; Star seemed to be similar to Steel's other novels with a female heroine who "[pulls herself] up by [her] bootstraps¡"(The New York Times Book Review). Each of the reviews researched basically said, "Ms. Steel's fans [wouldn't] be disappointed" (New York Times). Yet, there seemed to be a sense of ennui hanging over each of the reviews- a common boredom with the plot and dislike of Crystal Wyatt, the main character. Karen Stabiner of the Los Angeles Times described Steel as "getting a bit weary of the game," focusing on Steel's lack of detail and constant repetition of Crystal's many wonderful traits stating that "After the umpteenth affectionate reference to Crystal being totally unaware of her striking beauty, you have to wonder: How dumb is this girl?" Other critics enjoyed the novel but were frustrated over how long it took the heroine and her lost love to get back together. John Brosnahan, a writer for BookList, wrote "Although you know that Crystal and her man will eventually get back together, it seemingly takes almost everything, inlcuding the JFK assassination, to accomplish this romantic reunion." The best representation of the critics' reviews is probably Stewart Kellerman's review in The New York Times Book Review. Here is a passage from it: "?Star,' Ms. Steel's 24th novel, has all the lust and luster you'd expect. It's the vintage Steel her fans thirst for. It's full of nice characters who are too nice, evil ones who are too evil and, of course, ambivalent lovers who are too ambivalent. More frustrating than frustrated, her lovers drive you crazy. Crystal, a rancher's daughter, and Spencer, the son of a judge, meet at a wedding early in the novel. It's love at first sight, but Ms. Steel spends the next 400 or so pages finding ways to keep them apart and make them miserable." Although they tend to judge her writing a little harshly, Steel's critics acknowledge the fact that she is not writing her novels in order to win a Nobel Prize for Literature but rather to please her adoring fans. And they all agree that she does that famously. Sources: Brosnahan, John. "Upfront Advance Reviews." Rev. of Star, by Danielle Steel. BookList- 15 December 1988: 666. Kellerman, Stewart.

After 1990, reviews of Danielle Steel's Star were few and far between. Those found did not come from her literary critics but from her fans, who are probably her harshest judges. Both and offer, to their customers, reviews of the book that they plan to purchase by both literary magazines and other customers. The customer reviews were the most recent reviews that I could find. Unlike the literary critics that reviewed Steel's book, Star's readers' critiques ranged from absolute adoration to very strong contempt. Of the nineteen reviews found, the majority of them praised Steel for once again writing a fabulous story filled with love and hate and misery and happiness, Here are a few examples: Wow all the way! - 1/14/00 "I was captured in the heart by Crystal Wyatt, hoping that a better life would come for her...I couldn't put it down!...Truly awesome!" ( This Is An Awesome Book!!!!! - 9/27/98 "...No matter who came between Spencer and Crystal something always brought them back together. this is a true example of the classic love story and i love it. i have read this book 6times in 2months so i would suggest it to anyone..." ( While many of her readers were impressed by Ms. Steel's novel, there were some who it seemed were offended that they had to look at the book much less read it. Here are some more examples: Poor Characterizations - 6/2/99 "This is one of Steel's better books (although that's not saying much) but the characterizations leave something to be desired. Is anyone in this world as perfect (charming, beautiful, good) as Crystal? Spencer is a spineless wimp. And didn't anyone else besides me like Elizabeth better than Crystal?" ( Danielle Steel's "Star" - 12/25/98 "I found this book to be very disappointing...The romance was not very well developed and well told...I don't recommend that you read this unless you are really a Danielle Steel crazed fan." ( I would probably say that the following review is my favorite of all that I have found: Garbage - 6/11/98 "This is total crap. Imagine a world in which everybody has ONE flaw...except for the primary character of the novel who, the author assures us AD NAUSEUM, is absolutely perfect, without flaw, completely incorruptible, God's gift to this green Earth. Little snot-nosed brat if you ask me. I was forced to read this book for an "Intro to Fiction" class, and gave up after the first chapter, resolved to fail before committting such hara kiri upon myself...only to find out that the instructor for the course also gave up after the first chapter and scrapped the assignment. Oh well, you've been warned."( As you can see, Danielle Steel's twenty fourth novel received very mixed reviews. But considering the fact that Ms. Steel went on to write many more best-selling novels since 1989's Star, it is a certainty that her loyal fans (and maybe not so loyal) will continue to buy her novels for as long as she continues writing.

Assignment 5: Critical Analysis

1 Paste your critical analysis in here (maximum 2500 words)

Danielle Steel has written 48 novels in the past thirty years and each of them has made it to the top of the Best-Sellers List. Star was her twenty-fourth novel to do so. With the great quantity of novels that come from Steel, it is almost too easy to group them all together with no separate identities. And that, it seems, is what happened to Star. By the time of Star's publication, Steel had already written twenty-three best-sellers, including the novels Kaleidoscope and Zoya. While Zoya and Star did very well on the best-sellers list, it is safe to say that Kaleidoscope's reputation proceeded them. Readers seemed to enjoy Kaleidoscope very much and that lead to the purchasing of Steel's two subsequent novels. So, in terms of best-sellers, Star becomes grouped in the category of "Best-Seller because of Author Recognition,"-the popularity of the author and her previous novels being a main reason for its best-seller status. Steel's novels' popularity is very much dependent on the notoriety of the preceding novels. Star is an example of a novel whose majority of readers have already read at least one of Steel's previous novels. The book itself received reviews from each major book review that gave opinions about the book's lack of characters with substance, about the plot of the book being too drawn out. Still each of the critics, like the New York Times' Stewart Kellerman, does mention that "Ms. Steel's fans won't be disappointed" by this book, yet it seems that that is a common phrase about Steel's novels. Star is a story of a young girl, Crystal, who after leaving her family's ranch upon the death of her beloved father, finds fame and fortune in a singing career and reunites with her long lost love. Star's reviews were good for the most part, yet each of them tended to focus on Steel's lack of detail in the novel as well as the long drawn-out plot development. Yet at the same time, Star's reviews, both professional and amateur, are very similar to previous and future novels'. Reviews from the N.Y. Times and the L.A. Times usually say Steel's grammar could be better or that her plots could be more detailed, while her readers' reviews range from "this is the worst" to "this is the best book that I've ever read." The similarities between the reviews gives evidence of the similarities between the Steel novels-they seem to follow a formula that Steel uses for all of her novels. Each of Steel's novels consist of a heroine who is very beautiful , most of the time unaware of just how beautiful she is- like Star's Crystal, who at fourteen was "totally unaware of how startlingly beautiful she was" (Steel 2). In each heroine's life, she suffers a major tragedy whether it be poverty, rape, incest, heartache-the tragedies in Crystal's life being the death of her father and her rape at the hands of her brother-in-law. Eventually with the love of a wonderful man, the Danielle Steel heroine will be able to overcome the pain that she has had to endure and settle down to a life of happily ever after. That formula is used in Star as well as Zoya and Kaleidoscope, the two novels preceding Star. The novel that probably led to the popularity of Star is the popular Steel novel, Kaleidoscope. The story in Kaleidoscope revolves around three sisters who were split up upon the deaths of their parents and how each of them has led a different life from the other two. A friend of their deceased father feels that it his duty to reunite the three sisters who are so oblivious to the others' existence. The three sisters eventually find each other but they must learn how to face the tragedy of their parents' death and their long separation from each other. Kaleidoscope, Steel's twenty-first novel, is a great hit among her readers yet her critics' responses seem to be very similar to critiques of her past and future novels. Many of her reviews for Kaleidoscope touch on the fact that Steel's heroines are often too beautiful or too successful or too perfect. Of the novel's eldest sister Hilary, Los Angeles Times critic Karen Stabiner cynically tells of how Hilary is able to "[survive] incest, rape, abortion, malnutrition, and poverty to run a television network, meet the perfect man and be reunited with her two equally successful sisters." She also adds that Kaleidoscope is "the perfect antidote to all those nasty non-fiction articles and books about how women can't have it all." It seems, as is evident in Stabiner's review, that critics of Steel's novel feel that often her heroines are not in such dire straits as the author would have them to be. Yet to the Steel enthusiast that is not a problem and it seems as if Steel knows that. A review in Publishers Weekly states that "the pages of Steel's [Kaleidoscope] are packed with an assortment of one-dimensional characters, each one more broadly sketched than the last." Along with that is a review by New York Times critic Rosemary L. Bray stating that in this novel, "Ms. Steel...quickly returns to the traumas that she knows best: rape, incest, abortion, and unfaithful husbands." In this one statement, Bray has encapsulated the very essence of Steel's popularity. That popularity led to the success of her next novel, Zoya, the story of a cousin of Czar Nicholas who escapes persecution by fleeing to Paris and eventually ends up in New York City. There she loses two husbands and one child, survives the Great Depression, and eventually becomes a successful business woman. Steel again follows her successful formula. Yet that is what her fans were expecting. By her twenty-third novel, Steel is already a "blockbuster author," meaning that her fans know and like her style and so they will buy anything that she put out. That is evident in the reviews that Zoya received. Zoya became a best-seller based on Steel fans going out and buying the novel, yet it does not seem to be the top critics' reviews that led them to the bookstores. The New York Times critic William J. Harding says of Zoya: ...[D]espite the topping of political, social and emotional turmoil, it's about as tasty as a mayonnaise sandwich. This is the kind of novel your grandmother could read without blushing...[it] is a quaint antidote to those sex-filled novels about the rich, the rock stars and the Hollywood in-crowd..."Zoya" is a white-bread epic-harmless, bland, easily digestible. Los Angeles Times critic Don G. Campbell can't help but comment on how "It's a nice trait on Zoya's part-this ability to fall in love with the rich men, not the poor ones, entering her life." Despite what its critics thought, Zoya made it to the top of the best-seller and stayed there for a good amount of time. Steel's fans bought her twenty-third novel just like they bought the twenty-two before it. As Malcolm Gladwell of The New Yorker wrote in his article "The Science of the Sleeper", "People who buy or watch blockbusters have a clear sense of what they are going to get: a Danielle Steel novel is always -well, a Danielle Steel novel." Steel's readers saw the Steel name and bought the novel; they knew what to expect from past experiences with her novels, whether it was from their own readings of it, from the suggestions of friends, or from reviews of critics. Those experiences undoubtedly led to the success of her twenty-fourth novel, Star. Star's reviews were good but not stellar: critics liked the novel for what it would deliver to Steel's fans. In book reviews from Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and Chicago Tribune, Star was seen as a novel that would not disappoint Steel fans. Yet the critics also seemed bored by the Steel formula that all of her fans loved so much. Karen Stabiner of the Los Angeles Times described Steel as "getting a bit weary of the game," commenting on Star's seemingly overused plot. Critics believed that Steel took too long getting the two central characters together, yet her fans enjoyed this book just as much as they enjoyed her past novels. Customer reviews from ranged from complete amazement to utter disappointment. Yet even with the wide range of feelings for the book, one thing proved is that the readers are still buying and reading the books, even after a bad encounter with one her past novels. Here are some examples of that: Poor Characterizations - 6/2/99 "This is one of Steel's better books (although that's not saying much) but the characterizations leave something to be desired..." Danielle Steel's "Star" - 12/25/98 "I found this book to be very disappointing...I don't recommend that you read this unless you are really a Danielle Steel crazed fan." Those, however, are the people who are buying most of Danielle Steel's books-her fans that are crazy about each plot, each heroine, each glamorous life. Yet, as the first review shows, even the reader who may have been disappointed with her previous novels goes on to read Steel's following novels, probably in hopes that there will be a novel that they like as much as they liked the first one that they read. Star, Zoya, and Kaleidoscope are all best-selling novels written by a best-selling author renowned for her success. How these books would have done if Danielle Steel hadn't been so popular is debatable. Yet the fact remains that Steel went on to write twenty-four more novels and is still writing them to this day. Her Critics judge her for her simple all too-familiar plots and one dimensional characters at the same time that her readers praise her for writing a story filled with beautiful women, handsome men, and glamorous lifestyles. Her books fit the same Danielle Steel formula and so they are basically critiqued the same way. And it is the review of Kaleidoscope found at that sums up what most of her critics and probably most of her fans know already about Steel's books as a whole: "The potentially interesting story is flawed by awkward sentences and choppy, uneven construction. There is no time for detail or character development, and one scene follows another abruptly, so that the reader becomes confused at times. Despite its faults, this will be in demand because of Steel's popularity." Sources: Harding, William J. "In Short." Rev. of Zoya, by Danielle Steel. New York Times Book Review- 17 July 1988: 20.
